ImaGenes Signs Distribution, Archiving Agreement with Lawrence Livermore Lab

This article has been corrected. The previous version incorrectly stated that Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory had gained rights to archive and distribute the resources of the I.M.A.G.E. Consortium.
 
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Berlin-based ImaGenes has inked an agreement with the University of California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, under which ImaGenes is archiving and distributing all the resources of the I.M.A.G.E. (integrated molecular analysis of gene expression) Consortium.
 
The consortium is a publicly distributed resource of characterized cDNA clones, including the Mammalian Gene Collection.
 
ImaGenes said it has taken over the largest part of the RZPD German Resource Center for Genome Research’s clone collection, which includes the I.M.A.G.E. resource, and has moved the archive to the Biomedical Research Campus Berlin-Buch.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
