Vaccine and disease gene research gets government funding  

2006.08.31
The Center for Biological Sequence Analysis has received a DKK 13 m grant to support research into disease gene finding, vaccine design and allied areas

The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation has given a support grant of DKK 13 m (USD 2.21 m) to the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis, a part of the Technical University of Denmark. The money will support research into disease gene finding, vaccine design and allied areas.

The project will focus not only on the human genome, but also other types of macromolecular data such as protein-protein exchange data, which has proved very effective in finding new disease genes that express similar or identical symptoms to known genes.

The Center for Biological Sequence Analysis was established in 1993 and undertakes research in the areas of bioinformatics and system biology. The Center has a staff of 65 research scientists, working in seven separate specialist groups. The news was reported by BiotechDenmark.
