Genomatica Wins $750,000 SBIR Grant for Systems Biology Software

NEW YORK, Sept. 28 (GenomeWeb News) - Genomatica has received a $750,000 phase II SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) grant from the US Department of Energy under its Genomics:GtL program, Genomatica said today.


The two-year grant will be used to enhance core components of SimPheny, Genomatica's flagship software platform for systems biology, the San Diego-based company said.


In the phase I effort, Genomatica said it successfully installed SimPheny at academic laboratories engaged in computational biology research, including those at the University of Massachusetts, Penn State University, and the University of Delaware. In Phase II, Genomatica will develop enhanced functionality based on requirements gathered in phase I and ongoing customer feedback, it said.
