NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Oxford Gene Technology will use a gene sequence from the Pichia pastoris yeast owned by Integrated Genomics to develop a new microarray, the firms said today.
Under the agreement, OGT will use the sequence to design and build a 60-mer microarray that uses OGT’s ink-jet synthesis platform.
OGT will market the array worldwide and offer sample analysis services at its UK lab.
P. pastoris is a methylotrophic yeast commonly used in recombinant DNA and protein expression projects.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
