Metabolon and LS9 Partner to Apply Metabolomics to Biofuel Research and Production
News Jul 30, 2008
Metabolon, Inc. has announced that it has reached an agreement to test materials developed by LS9, Inc.
Applying Metabolon’s global biochemical profiling services, researchers will seek to identify changes in metabolites occurring during biofuel production. Metabolon’s technology will assist LS9’s efforts to optimize cellular metabolism in its proprietary Renewal Petroleum™ production process.
“As interest in the use of metabolomics has continued to grow, we have seen increased uptake from industry sectors like biofuel production,” explained John Ryals, chief executive of Metabolon.
“Processes, like those at LS9, are well-suited for Metabolon’s biochemical profiling technology as we are able to provide the only true global picture of the reactions taking place at a biochemical level. This has an immediate and measurable impact on design of the fermentation processes in use which creates significant return in greater production and lowered cost.”
Previous work by the International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium (IMSGC) has identified 233 genetic risk variants. However, these only account for about 20% of overall disease risk, with the remaining genetic culprits proving elusive. A new study has tracked down four of these hard-to-find genes.READ MORE
Scientists at McGill have found the answer to a question that perplexed Charles Darwin; if natural selection works at the level of the individual, fighting for survival and reproduction, how can a single colony produce worker ants that are so dramatically different in size – from “minor” workers to large-headed soldiers with huge mandibles – especially if they are sterile?
Scientists have developed a successful method to make truly personalized predictions of future disease outcomes for patients with certain types of chronic blood cancers. The study combined extensive genetic and clinical information to predict the prognosis for patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms.
