Agilent to Unveil Shared Microarray Design Program

NEW YORK, Jan. 13 (GenomeWeb News) - Agilent will unveil the microarray industry's first shared design program today, according to the Palo Alto, Calif.-based firm.


The new program will allow researchers to share their custom microarray designs either with designated groups while maintaining control of their intellectual property, or with the scientific community at large. The firm said that the program would particularly benefit scientists in consortia working collaboratively on specific organisms.


The first organisms made available through the program are C. elegans and Magnaporthe grisea, a fungus that causes rice blast disease.
