NEW YORK, July 3 - Start-up bioinformatics company IP Genesis has granted a nonexclusive license to Baylor College of Medicine for its genomic analysis system, the university said yesterday.
The system, Comparative Sequence Assembly, compares sequences across species to help identify genes embedded in non-coding DNA.
It speeds assembly after shotgun sequencing by allowing the completed sequences of other organisms to be used as assembly templates. Company founder Aleksandar Milosavljevic says the technique cuts the time for mammalian assembly by 20 to 50 percent.
