Yahoo! Finance Incyte Genomics and the National Institutes of Health Form Alliance to Advance Human Genome Project Efforts
"Incyte Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: INCY - news), the leading genomic information company, announced today a contract with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to sequence DNA for the Mammalian Gene Collection. The agreement is part of an effort by the NIH to create a public domain set of full-length expressed human and mouse genes, a resource that will be vital in unraveling how genes influence health and disease. All of the gene sequence data and clones from this project will be publicly available to the entire scientific research community.

The Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) project is an ambitious new effort by the NIH. Coordinated by the National Cancer Institute and the National Human Genome Research Institute, the MGC will generate a comprehensive catalogue and clone library of full-length expressed human and mouse genes. Currently, for example, only about 6,000 full-length gene sequences from the more than 100,000 human genes are in the public domain. Incyte will play a critical role in the project by providing customized sequencing services."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
