Agilent Technologies releases probe sequence, annotation information for all its commercial gene expression microarrays
... time released the chip design, probe sequence and annotation
information for all of its microarrays. The release of this information is expected to improve cross-laboratory experimental research and cross-platform data comparison. "Full release of the probe sequences is an admirable and responsible position f...
Fleshing out the genome
... National Academy of Sciences that applies the new annotation
method to a strain of the metal-detoxifying bacterium Shewanella oneidensis. "In a lot of cases," said James K. Fredrickson, a co-author and PNNL chief scientist, "it was not known from the gene sequence if a protein was even expressed. Now that we ...
Expression Project for Oncology (expO) completes first phase of standardized gene expression analyses
...s for molecular characterization studies. Clinical annotation
for each tissue sample will enable researchers to form testable clinical hypotheses for use in future treatment decision making. Tissue collection and data dissemination will be conducted in a manner that fully protects patient privacy. Over a three-...

Scientists reveal molecular secrets of the malaria parasite
...titute in the U.K., where thesequencing and genome annotation
was performed on two species of rodentmalaria (Plasmodium chabaudi and P. berghei); the University of Leidenin the Netherlands and Imperial College in England, where scientistscarried out gene expression studies; and The Institute for GenomicResearch...
Solution to Pollution: New Bacteria Eats Toxic Waste
..., and the researchers will then participate in the annotation
process by which genes in the sequences will be identified. The researchers will be able to understand the genetic material that allows these bacteria to degrade the PAHs and survive in the soil. Such knowledge may help researchers better understand ...
