The new tool can provide a more accurate and unbiased view of the multiple outcomes of CRISPR-based gene editing, according to the developers.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers at the University of Delaware will lead a project funded with $3.9 million from the National Science Foundation to study how genes in one type of maize may influence the plant's resistance to diseases, and compare the genomes of many types of maize to bette

University of Delaware researchers have received a five-year $4.2 million grant from the US Department of Agriculture to lead a multi-center team seeking to enhance the genetic diversity of corn for cultivation in North America.

A grant from the National Science Foundation to Penn State and the University of Delaware will fund epigenetics and genetic stability focused on corn breeding.

The patent covers a process of chemical derivatization in liquid chromatography separation products.

The Delaware Biotechnology Institute was started with economic development in mind, but the scientists who call it home say it's been a significant boon to their own research.

William Moffitt signed a three-year contract to remain president and CEO of Nanosphere, while BioTrove's Al Luderer joined Agendia's supervisory board, and more.
