3rd Millennium Creates Huntington s Disease Microarray Database

NEW YORK, June 10-The bioinformatics company 3rd Millennium said today that it has created the largest public repository of gene expression data with its Huntington's Disease NeuMetrix Data Repository.

 

The database, which is web-based, includes more than 15,000 microarray data files derived from experiments run by Hereditary Disease Array Group researchers.

 

It will be publicly available in the fall of 2002.

 

The Huntington's Disease repository was built as part of a $1.8 million U.S. commerce department Advanced Technology Program grant. Under the grant, which was issued in October 2000, 3rd Millennium is developing software to integrate a range of biological data including gene function, gene expression, and protein interaction studies.

 

The Hereditary Disease Array Group is sponsored by the Hereditary Disease Foundation.

 

3rd Millennium is based in Cambridge, Mass.
