NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Four researchers at the University of Oklahoma have won a $9.7 million Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence grant from the National Institutes of Health to support the growth and competitiveness of the university's structural biology science programs, OU said on W

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers from China and the US will sequence 100 human adenoviruses, including ones that cause respiratory, gastrointestinal, and ocular diseases, under a partnership announced today.

The University of Oklahoma will use a $3 million grant from the Department of Energy to study the soil microbe communities in the Alaskan tundra and in Oklahoma grasslands.

The University of Oklahoma's Advanced Center for Genome Technology has received a $7.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to support its work on the tomato genome sequencing project.

The $1.5 million in grants to OU will fund studies of a water flea and sulfate-reducing bacteria.

The agreement formalizes an existing relationship between the entities that dates back several years, and is expected to help increase the efficiency of startup creation at the proof-of-concept and private funding stages. In addition, both groups expect the partnership to have a significant life sciences component since about half of OU's intellectual property portfolio is in the biomedical space.
