Sigma Life Science, Cofactor Genomics to develop rat genome database
March 2011
SHARING OPTIONS:

ST. LOUIS—Sigma Life Science's SAGE Labs initiative has partnered with Cofactor Genomics in an effort to sequence genomes for six of the most widely used strains of rat.  As part of the agreement, Cofactor Genomics plans to generate and analyze sequence data using next-generation sequencing systems, while SAGE Labs plans to provide the samples and to host a new, free public database at sageresearchmodels.com later this year. The database will include exclusive genomic information and analysis tools.

"With the costs of whole genome sequencing rapidly coming down, it is now far more feasible to understand the genomes of the most widely used model organisms such as the rat," says Dr. Edward Weinstein, director of SAGE Labs at Sigma Life Science. "Sigma Life Science and its SAGE Labs initiative plan to lead the way in revealing these new genomes and making the information publicly available."
