SECOND GENERATION EST CLUSTER AND ANALYSIS TOOLS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Todd M. Smith
Award Amount: $106,546.00
Abstract:
Not Available Rhenium has been demonstrated to be the ideal material for construction of structures exposed to high temperature propellant exhausts, including divert systems, rocket motor throats, and gun tubes. Unfortunately, rhenium has three drawbacks, consisting of high cost, poor… More

SECOND GENERATION DNA SEQUENCE MANAGEMENT TOOLS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Todd M. Smith
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
The human genome project spurred the development of high throughput technologies, especially in the area of DNA sequencing. Not only has this effort produced a draft of the human genome, it's catalyzed development of an entire industry based on DNA sequencing and genomics. Since… More

An Optical Map-Assisted Assembler

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Christie P. Robertson
Award Amount: $99,767.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Optical mapping is a method by which large-scale, efficient restriction digests can be utilized as an alternative to sequence assembly. In traditional sequence assembly, a genetic target is fragmented, amplified, and sequenced. Software algorithms then find… More
