The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity has amassed a team to spot DNA orders that could be used in bioweapons, Bloomberg reports.

Researchers from eight organizations will use the grant to evaluate the use of NGS with the goal of implementing the technology into working crime laboratories.

Included are a method for predicting peptide detection via mass spectrometry; a method for purifying proteins; and a method of biomarker analysis.

A report issued by Battelle Memorial Foundation and the Biotechnology Industry Organization has found that job creation by US life sciences employers survived the first year of the recession in 2008, and thrived over most of the previous two years. However, the report also showed a decline in bioscience-related patents among the top 10 states in that category.

Included are patents describing systems and methods for removing noise from spectral data, a method for preparing peptide spectra for identification, and methods and reagents for saturation-labeling of proteins.

Included is a new method for mass analysis of samples and a method for absolute quantification of proteins by multistage mass spectrometry.
