BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 15, 2005--Blue Heron Biotechnology, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute. The grant will fund research on a simple, economical and high throughput method for studying protein function. This new method will enable the production of large pools of beads with a unique DNA molecule on each bead and the protein or proteins encoded by that DNA molecule attached to the same bead. Protein characterization and optimization are crucial steps for product development of many medical and industrial products. This technology holds the promise to reduce the cost and time for biological product development.
