Alberta Transplant Genomics Center Using GenoLogics' Geneus

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - The University of Alberta has installed the GenoLogics’ Geneus software in its Alberta Transplant Applied Genomics Center (ATAGC), the company said yesterday.
The center is using the informatics and scientific management system in its diagnostic gene expression and transcriptomics research with an eye toward developing molecular diagnostics for organ transplant recipients. The company said the research uses gene expression microarrays to understand the causes of organ rejection and has already led to a series of gene expression sets that are useful in assessing rejection events.
The center also expects to use proteomics and metabolomics research to add to its ongoing efforts and to partner with pharmaceutical companies to develop commercial therapeutics drugs aimed at countering organ rejection.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
