Affymetrix Unveils Plans to Double Plant and Animal Genome Microarray Offering

Sacramento - Today, Affymetrix, Inc. announced plans to make eight new GeneChip(R) plant and animal genome arrays available in 2005 as part of its Consortia Program, including canine, Rhesus macaque, Medicago trancatula (legume), Brassica, tomato, citrus, poplar and sugar cane. More than 20 research presentations at this week's Plant and Animal Genome Conference XIII in San Diego, Calif. feature Affymetrix arrays launched in 2004 under the Consortia Program.

Some of the studies being presented include: -- Dr. John Cushman who monitored environmental stresses in the wine grape -- Dr. Matias Kirst who studied SNP effects in expression analysis of diverse species using an early prototype of the maize array -- Dr. Brett Tyler who studied transcriptional profiling of Phytophthora sojae infection of the soybean plant The Affymetrix GeneChip Consortia Program is a collaborative initiative that enables the plant and animal research communities to consolidate their sequence data on the Affymetrix industry-standard GeneChip brand platform. In 2004 Affymetrix worked closely with global research communities to launch eight plant and animal genome arrays: Vitis vinifera (grape), soybean, wheat, rice, maize, bovine, chicken, and porcine. "By underwriting the design fees required to produce these new arrays, Affymetrix is putting GeneChip technology within reach of virtually any research community," said Lianne McLean, Director, Gene Expression Marketing at Affymetrix. "We had great success with this program last year. By providing the plant and animal community groups with a single, standardized platform for gene expression research, they can easily compare results, build reliable databases and move science forward more quickly." Affymetrix Consortia Program arrays are developed using the same reliable design and manufacturing process that have made Affymetrix the industry-standard technology for gene expression analysis. Over the past ten years more than 3,000 papers have been published using GeneChip technology. For more information, please visit www.Affymetrix.com.
