Delaware Researchers Win USDA Contract to Use Lynx MPSS Tech in Rice Study

NEW YORK, Feb. 24 (GenomeWeb News) -- University of Delaware researchers Blake Meyers and Pamela Green have received an undisclosed USDA grant to use Lynx Therapeutics's small RNA profiling technology in genomic rice studies, the company announced today.


The researchers will use a new protocol for Lynx's massively parallel signature sequencing technology to attempt to identify all small RNA molecules expressed in rice, Meyers said in a statement.


Data produced in the study will be publicly available, the researchers said.


The award was made by the federal agency through a program to study the functional genomics of agriculturally important organisms.
