Bayer Healthcare Acquires OriGene s cDNA Clone Collection

NEW YORK, March 17 (GenomeWeb News) - OriGene said this week that Bayer Healthcare has acquired its collection of full-length cDNA clones for functional analyses.

 

"Having access to a comprehensive array of cDNA clones is of utmost importance in today's gene- or protein-based research labs," Ulf Bruggemeier, director of target research at Bayer Healthcare, said in a statement. "We believe that the OriGene cDNA collections are uniquely able to provide us with the necessary content to support the drug-related research and diagnostic projects across Bayer Healthcare."
