U Delaware Scientists Win NSF Grant to Study Small RNAs Using Lynx s MPSS Technology

NEW YORK, Oct. 19 (GenomeWeb News) - Scientists at the University of Delaware have won a research grant from the National Science Foundation to characterize small RNAs in plants using technology from Lynx Therapeutics, the company said today.


The researchers, led by Blake Meyers and Pamela Green, plan to use Lynx's MPSS technology to develop methods to capture and sequence small RNAs on a larger scale than previously possible. This is the scientists' third NSF-funded study that involves using Lynx technology, according to Meyers.


The most recent award to Green and Meyers listed in the NSF database is a  $200,000 grant awarded in August and entitled "SGER: Development of Methods for Analysis of Small Non-coding Transcripts by MPSS."
