GeneGo Wins $750K DoD SBIR Grant to Develop Systems Bio Proteomics Tech

This article has been updated from a previous version to correct the name of Rosetta Biosoftware.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GeneGo said today that it has been awarded a $750,000 Phase II Small Business Innovation Research grant from the US Department of Defense to develop a systems biology suite for functional proteomics analysis.

Specifically, GeneGo will adapt its MetaCore data-mining platform to handle various proteomics data and use new algorithms to reconstruct protein-state specific biological networks and pathways, the company said.

GeneGo said it will collaborate with the research group of Austin Yang at the University of Southern California, Rosetta Biosystems, and the Michigan Proteome Consortium on the project.
