Expression Analysis Announces Collaboration with The Immunological Genome Project

2008-07-17 08:53:00

DURHAM, N.C.–(EMWPresswire)–Expression Analysis, Inc., the industrys

leading provider of genomic services for clinical trails and research,

announced today that it has entered into a scientific collaboration with

The Immunological Genome Project to provide microarray expression

profiling services for this NIH funded project.

The project will generate, under rigorous standardized conditions, a

complete microarray dissection of gene expression in the immune system

of the mouse. The focus is on primary cells ex vivo. The cells will be

analyzed through different states of maturation, innate or adaptive

immune responses, effector stages and different tissue localization. Dr.

Christophe Benoist, Principal Investigator for the project, said, We

approached Expression Analysis because of their reputation in the

market. We are grateful for their interest in the project and we look

forward to an exciting collaboration in this important endeavor.

Expression Analysis is expected to process thousands of mouse specimens

over the next couple years. With the companys

capacity to process over 80,000 arrays per year on the Affymetrix and

Illumina platforms and the additional capacity of the Heliscope next

generation DNA sequencer technology, Expression Analysis is capable of

performing hundreds of such projects each year. We

are pleased to have been selected to work on this project to define the

connectivity between genes in different immune cells, and how the

network fluctuates with genetic variation. We look forward to a very

successful collaboration, stated Steve

McPhail CEO, Expression Analysis.

About The Immunological Genome Project

The Immunological Genome Project is a NIH funded consortium. A

collaborative project whose goal is to generate gene expression

profiles, and construct genetic regulatory works, for all populations

and subpopulations of immunological cells in the mouse. It is a

multi-center project for the cell preparation, but all pipelined to a

single location for RNA preparation and expression profiling.
