Roche, Omni Genetics Extend Alliance to Identify SNPs in Mice

NEW YORK, March 17 (GenomeWeb News) - Omni Genetics and Roche have extended their collaboration on genome-wide SNP discovery in the mouse genome.

 

The companies in April 2005 penned the original deal, which sought to identify SNPs within the genome of closely related mouse strains using Omni Genetics' proprietary rapid-turnaround, whole-genome SNP-scanning technology.

 

Results of the SNP studies will be used by Omni Genetics and Roche to develop new products for human disease and drug response, Omni Genetics said.

 

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
