Denmark s Technical University to Lead EU s Yeast Systems Biology Network

NEW YORK, Nov. 2 (GenomeWeb News) - The Technical University of Denmark's Center of Microbial Biotechnology will head the EU's coordination action on yeast systems biology, the university announced yesterday.


Launched yesterday, the Yeast Systems Biology Network involves 17 European universities and two start-up biotech companies, InNetics AB and Fluxome Sciences A/S, and is expected to run for three years.


YSBN will have a budget of €1.3 million ($1.57 million) to create standardized methods for research and reference databases, and organize an international conference in June of 2006 along with other workshops.


Additional details were not disclosed.
