Eppley Institute Adopts DNASTAR Software
News Jul 04, 2013
DNASTAR has announced that the Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has chosen DNASTAR Lasergene software as its sequence assembly and analysis software platform for its faculty, staff and students.
Dr. Adam Karpf, Associate Professor at the Institute, said, “Many of our researchers have used Lasergene for years and been extremely satisfied with it. DNASTAR made us an attractive offer to provide access to their software to all of our scientists, staff and students. We took advantage of the opportunity to allow our team to have access to strong molecular biology software on an unlimited basis. This arrangement will help support our success and growth for years to come.”
Tom Schwei, Vice President and General Manager of DNASTAR, stated, “This site license provides a uniform structure that will support the Institute in all of its endeavors. As we continue to develop our software to meet emerging cancer research needs, all faculty, staff and students at the Institute will benefit by having access to the most recent developments in our products. We appreciate the trust placed in our tools and company by the staff of the Institute and we look forward to continuing to meet their sequence assembly and analysis software needs in the future.”
Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.
Researchers Awarded $28M for Illuminating Druggable Genome NIH GrantsNews
Researchers receive grants as part of the NIH program focused on experimental and informatics approaches to characterize understudied proteins from three gene families: ion channels, G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and protein kinases.READ MORE
Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
