NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Biolog today announced new distributors for its products in Europe.

CEO Barry Bochner said that Biolog will use the funds to continue adapting its Phenotype Microarray platform to study Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other fastidious pathogens, expand its Microbial Identification System to cover more fastidious species, and work with researchers at Texas A&M University to study gene function in Mycobacterium.

Appearing in the online editions of Fungal Genetics and Biology and Microbiology, the papers describe the use of Biolog's Phenotype Microarray platform to research secondary pathways in F. graminearum, which is responsible for head blight and crop losses.

Harold Varmus, a former NIH director, says that proposed reductions to the agency's budget are worrisome.

The Genome 10K project is to sequence about 10,000 vertebrate genomes, including ones of endangered species, Digital Trends reports.

The new Coalition to Save NIH Funding aims to educate lawmakers and the public on the significance of biomedical research.
