Agencourt Reports Publication of Rickettsia siberica Protein-Protein Interaction Map

NEW YORK, March 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Agencourt Bioscience announced today the publication of a genome-wide protein-protein interaction map of virulence-related genes in Rickettsia siberica.


Agencourt researchers completed the map in collaboration with scientists from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The partnership resulted in the mapping of the Rickettsia siberica genome in June 2002.


The protein-protein interaction map will appear in the March edition of Nucleic Acids Research, said Agencourt.


For a more in-depth story on the Rickettsia map, see this week's edition of ProteoMonitor.
