Golden Helix to Collaborate with Academic Partners on CNA Program

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Golden Helix today said that it has signed up six academic centers as initial collaborators in a program to refine and advance copy number analysis methods.
The inaugural partners in the program include researchers from the University of California Los Angeles, the Zucker Hillside Hospital, Montreal Heart Institute, Emory University, Case Western Reserve University, and the University at Lubeck, Germany.
Golden Helix announced the opportunity for collaboration last month during a webcast and said that it has since received proposals from 20 institutions. The collaborations will cover a wide array of diseases and sample characteristics and include data generated from Illumina and Affymetrix genotyping platforms, the Bozeman, Mont.-based company said.
The collaboration will combine Golden Helix’s informatics expertise with its collaborators’ “in-depth knowledge about the biology of their diseases under study,” Golden Helix President and CEO Christophe Lambert said in a statement.
