Move over microarray listservs, there s a new kid on the Internet block. The USENET newsgroup bionet.molbio.genearrays has been opened up for an unmonitored discussion of all topics related to microarray and gene array technology.
To Better bridge the atomistic microcosms of microarray research, David Allison, a professor of biostatistics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health has received a $409,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.
Sharing a first name and a vision, Whitehead Fellow David Sabatini and former McKinsey & Company consultant David Chao are starting an as-yet unnamed company to commercialize cell-based gene expression microarrays.
The scientists at Hayward, Calif.-based Biolog have turned the concept of microarraying inside out: Instead of measuring thousands of different genes from a cell, Biolog s Phenotype Microarrays, which company scientists outline in a June 25 paper published in Genome Research, measure the effect of one gene on thousands of different cell conditions.
PamGene of Den Bosch, Netherlands said it has received a US patent, number 6,225,131, describing PamGene’s flow-through microarray testing technology. In this technology, samples flow through microarrays made of a porous aluminum oxide.
