Medical Research Council Renews Sequencing Contract with Clinical Data's Cogenics

NEW YORK, June 6 (GenomeWeb News) - Clinical Data said today that the UK's Medical Research Council has re-selected its Cogenics division as one of its three official DNA sequencing providers.

Cogenics is one of three units formed by Clinical Data in a March reorganization and represents the combined operations and marketing infrastructure of former CD companies Genaissance, Lark, and Icoria to provide comprehensive pharmacogenomics and molecular services.

Last week, Cambridge, UK-based Geneservice and German firm GATC Biotech also announced that they were selected as preferred sequencing vendors to the Medical Research Council.
