Rice Wins $1M to Study Gene Transcription Delay Processes | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Rice University scientists will use a $1 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to fund multidisciplinary research into how delays in gene transcription affect cellular functioning, potentially yielding knowledge that could be used in a range of synthetic biology applications.

The Rice researchers plan to use the five-year grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences develop methods for analyzing models of gene networks that incorporate transcription delay as part of their processes, Rice said today.
