Ymir Genomics, MUSC to Search for Bladder Cancer Biomarkers | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Ymir Genomics today announced a biomarker discovery agreement with the Medical University of South Carolina targeting bladder cancer. 

The firm aims to develop a diagnostic kit leveraging Ymir's urinary extracellular vesicle/RNA isolation technology and the expertise of the university's proteomics center. Ymir will isolate extracellular vesicles and RNA and analyze miRNA profiles of urine collected from patients with bladder cancer, as well as controls. MUSC will take the isolated vesicle preps and profile them based on proteins, glycans, and lipids.
