The research team is developing a computational system for studying the relationship between RNA structure and function.

The firm will use the award to develop silica nanomaterial for use with many sample types, including blood, cultured cells, and pathogens.

The effort, dubbed the National Resource for Translational and Developmental Proteomics, aims to improve on the technology and train others in its use.

The funds will be used to expand the PharmGKB database and support the activities of the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium.
