Expression Analysis To Provide Array Services for Immunity Genomics Project

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Expression Analysis said today that it will provide microarray expression profiling services for the Immunological Genome Project, a program funded by the National Institutes of Health.
 
IGP is a consortium focused on generating gene expression profiles and building genetic regulatory networks for immunological populations in the mouse. The project will generate a complete microarray dissection of gene expression in the mouse immune system.
 
It will focus on ex vivo cells that will be analyzed through different states of maturation, immune responses, different effector stages, and different tissue localization.
 
Expression Analysis provides its expression profiling, genotyping, and sequencing services using Illumina, Affymetrix, and Applied Biosystems’ technologies.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
