Icoria to Pocket $3M from NIEHS to Develop RNAi Library

NEW YORK, Nov. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - Icoria is set to receive $3 million from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to develop a new RNAi library, the institute said today.

 

The 3-year effort aims at studying how genes related to environmental health and toxicology might contribute to environmentally related disease. The RNAi library will be available to researchers through the NIEHS' NationalCenterfor Toxicogenomics, the institute said.
