chemical genomics Gates Foundation Provides Grant to IDRI for TB Research The Infectious Disease Research Institute will use the grant to use "chemical genomics" medium- and high-throughput screening approaches to identify candidate targets against tuberculosis. Canada Funds Prostate Cancer Chemogenomics The Vancouver Prostate Centre will use funding from Genome BC to conduct computational chemogenomic screening of compounds in a search for new prostate cancer treatments. BioFocus Joins Argenta, Genentech Research Alliance BioFocus will provide Genentech with integrated medicinal chemistry, in vitro biology, and ADME services. The Screen Machine Premium Chris Austin has built a world-class chemical genomics facility to develop screening assays for a whole host of biological systems and research purposes. Now he's looking for scientists to make the most of it. More Genomics in EPA's Future The agency's new strategic plan will turn to 'omics and molecular pathway analysis to understand and monitor environmental toxicity concerns.
