Karolinska Institute Joins Canadian-UK Structural Genomics Consortium

NEW YORK, Sept. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - The Structural Genomics Consortium has added a research center at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden to its two facilities at the University of Oxford and the Unversity of Toronto, the Karolinska Institute said yesterday.


The new laboratory plans to determine at least 50 new three-dimensional protein structures of biomedical importance in the next two years.


The SGC, a charity funded with $95 million over three years by GlaxoSmithKline, the government of Ontario, and two Canadian regional research trusts,  has been operating since July 2004 and determined 78 novel protein structures in its first year.
