NEW YORK, March 6 - UK-based Oxagen and The University of Warwick have jointly won a grant for £2 million, or $3 million, to chart genome-wide functional variation in the genes for G-protein coupled receptors.
The three-year grant from the LINK Applied Genomics Programme will bring together yeast-based systems developed at Warwick for high-throughput GPCR-function analysis with Oxagen's experience in large-scale genetic analysis.
The grant is the largest made by the Management Committee for the LINK Programme in Applied Genomics since it was created in July 2000. The grant itself is co-funded by the UK Department of Trade and Industry, the Medical Research Council, and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
