EU Awards Tripos $1.1M for Fellowship Program

NEW YORK, June 7 (GenomeWeb News) - The European Union has awarded Tripos a Marie Curie Fellowship for Transfer of Knowledge worth approximately 875,000 ($1.1 million) to pay for seven biology and chemistry researchers to join the company, Tripos said today.

 

The fellowship is being awarded under the EU's Sixth Framework Program, and is to be used to pay for seven researchers to join Tripos Discovery in Bude, UK, for 18 months each over a four-year period, Tripos said.

 

Tripos said the fellows will be recruited from continental Europe, and the first recruit is expected to begin work later this year.

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.
