SUNY Stony Brook Researcher Gains Digital Gene's TOGA Technology


LA JOLLA, Calif.--Digital Gene Technologies, a gene expression company here, announced its second selection under a new academic research collaboration program that makes Digital Gene's patented TOGA technology available free of charge to selected research scientists.

Simon Halegoua, a professor in the department of neurobiology and behavior at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, will utilize Digital Gene's combined high-throughput differential display technology and bioinformatics tool in ongoing laboratory research into the Nerve Growth Factor signal transduction pathway that mediates the maturation of functionally differentiated neurons and prevents their entry into programmed pathways leading to neuronal apoptosis.

Digital Gene announced its first academic collaborator earlier this month. Peter Vogt of the Scripps Research Institute is using the technology in a project designed to identify and isoloate genes that are differentially expressed in chicken cells tranformed by the oncogene "jun."
