ViaLactia Biosciences, Orion Genomics Provide Proprietary Ryegrass Sequence Data To Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory To Enable Annotation Of Public Plant Sequences
10/19/2005 5:10:29 PM
ViaLactia Biosciences (NZ) Limited, a genomics subsidiary of Fonterra Co-Operative Group Limited, and Orion Genomics LLC, (St. Louis, MO), today announced that proprietary sequence data resulting from their 2001 research alliance to characterize the gene sequence of ryegrass will be provided to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory researchers (CSHL, New York). CSHL researchers will use the data to annotate publicly available plant sequences with the aim of improving forage and cereal crops for traits such as greater nutritive value and higher yield. Results will be made available to the international research community through the renowned Gramene database, a genomics resource for scientists and breeders working on grasses worldwide.
