NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The UK's Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and the Scottish Government have funded two genomics-based projects under a new £3 million ($4.7 million) joint initiative that will focus on developing new ways to improve potato and onion crops.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In a special issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association out today, researchers presented a set of studies, editorials, and viewpoint articles centered on a genomics theme.

The Crop Improvement Research Club, a partnership between the BBSRC, Scotland, and industry, has awarded the first of two planned funding tranches totaling $11.3 million.

The collaboration covers Bruker's two flagship high-performance mass specs, the solariX FTMS and maXis UHR-TOF, and will include the development of new applications for the two platforms, as well as technology improvements for the instruments.

The partners will develop new mass spec applications and instrumentation.
