Lynx to Provide Gene Expression Services for NIH Database

NEW YORK, Feb. 26 (GenomeWeb News) - Lynx Therapeutics will provide gene expression analysis services worth several million dollars to NIH to build a mouse reference transcriptome database, the company said today.

 

Under the agreement, with SAIC-Frederick on behalf of a consortium of NIH institutes, Lynx will use its Massively Parallel Signature Sequencing technology to study gene expression patterns in mouse tissue samples provided by NIH. The data will enter a reference transcriptome database.

 

Lynx, SAIC-Frederick, and a number of NIH institutes already collaborate on several genome structure and gene expression projects, according to the company.
