Genomica Awarded NCI Grant to Design Cancer Gene Discovery Software

Premium

BOULDER, Colo.--Pharma-cogenomics software maker Genomica was awarded a $100,000 grant by the US National Cancer Institute to develop a system for analyzing gene expression for cancer gene discovery. Genomica said it will use the grant to develop Expression Manager, an integrated, object-oriented, CORBA-compliant software suite that will manage the storage, manipulation, and data analysis challenges presented by gene expression research. The software is extensible and flexible to allow researchers to organize and annotate expression data according to specific research interests, to incorporate novel analysis algorithms at run-time, and to automate the analysis for high-throughput expression projects.
