German Resource Center for Genome Research is Closing Its Doors

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The German Resource Center for Genome Research said it is shutting down its services operations at the end of July, and that ImaGenes and Atlas Biolabs will take over “most” of its service offerings.
 
A reason for the closure was not given. 
 
The Berlin- and Heidelberg-based non-profit has been offering Affymetrix’ microarray services through Affy’s European distributor, NimbleGen, as well as a number of other genomics services.
 
RZPD said it will not take any orders after July 10.
