While the United Sates is still the world leader, Europe is having a good deal of success in the field of advanced genomics and proteomics research. Significant government funding together with the presence of large pharmaceutical companies has made Europe a major competitor in the efforts to deploy genomics and proteomics as vital tools in drug discovery and development.
Functional genomics and proteomics have been quite successful in identifying functions of potential therapeutic targets such as encoded proteins. In fact, the possibilities of identifying more than 10,000 novel target antigens in the human genome may accelerate the discovery of new drugs and therapeutic molecules.
AMP will host its largest ever annual meeting next week with an expected attendance of more than 1,700 molecular diagnostic professionals plus 1,300 representatives from more than 180 exhibiting companies. With more than 25 hours of educational sessions and 350 poster presentations, the AMP 2013 Annual Meeting is the premier source for educational information on all things molecular.
Evolution has altered the human genome over hundreds of thousands of years -- and now humans can do it in a matter of months.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) has announced that two new research projects will together receive nearly £11.5m under the Structural Proteomics of Rational Targets Initiative (SPORT).
Proteomic analysis has identified significant differences between the proteins expressed in renal cell carcinoma samples and in healthy renal tissue, UK researchers report.
In recent years, the science of biology has been dominated by genomics, the study of genes and their functions.
Integromics, a market leader in IT solutions provision for life sciences in the field of genomics and proteomics, today announces the availability of OmicsHub(R) Proteomics 2.0, a new version of the OmicsHub product adding several new features to its existing centralized data management and analysis capabilities for mass spectrometry laboratories and core facilities.
