Scoring, Sequence Analysis and Proteomics



Apr 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from Genomic Solutions Inc.

    ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 5 /PRNewswire/ --
 Genomic Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq:   GNSL), Pyrosequencing AB (SSE: PYRO A), and
 Transgenomic Inc. (Nasdaq:   TBIO) are co-sponsors of a nine-city seminar series
 covering the latest advances and techniques in genomics and proteomics
 research.  Leading researchers and industry experts will explore how new
 technologies are accelerating major developments in genomics.

     The daylong seminars will explore a variety of research topics.  These
 include high sensitivity, high-accuracy SNP discovery and screening;
 SNP analysis, technology and applications; advances in proteomic analysis;
 demonstration of Pyrosequencing and further application review; managing
 today's results and designing tomorrow's research; and novel applications of
 the WAVE(R) System: RNA fractionation and oligonucleotide purification.
     Seminars will take place in Seattle, Wash., April 9; San Francisco,
 Calif., April 11; San Diego, Calif., April 12; Chicago, Ill., April 20;
 Houston, Texas, April 23; St. Louis, Mo., April 24; Bethesda, Md., April 30;
 Newark, N.J., May 1; and Boston, Mass., May 3.  There is no charge for the
 seminars and lunch will be provided.
     Pyrosequencing AB supplies complete solutions for applied genetic analysis
 based on Pyrosequencing(TM) technology, a simple-to-use DNA sequencing
 technique.  Dedicated software and reagent kits are used with PSQ(TM)96
 Systems for sequence analysis, SNP scoring, mutation detection and genotyping.
 This easy-to-use, highly accurate technology is now available in an ultra high
 throughput platform.
     Transgenomic provides innovative research tools to the genomics segment of
 the life sciences industry.  These tools enable researchers to discover and
 understand variation in the human genetic code, or genome, in order to
 accelerate and improve drug development and diagnostics.  Transgenomic's WAVE
 System is recognized as a leading tool to analyze genetic mutations with the
 highest accuracy and sensitivity.  WAVE Systems are fully automated for high
 throughput screening of large numbers of samples for mutations.  Transgenomic
 is a global leader in genomics research and development, providing
 state-of-the-art systems for DNA/RNA analysis and purification.
     Genomic Solutions Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, markets and sells
 instruments, software, consumables and services used to determine the activity
 level of genes and to isolate, identify and characterize proteins.  The
 company's products and systems enable researchers to perform complex, high
 volume experiments at a lower cost and in less time than traditional
 techniques.  As a result, Genomic Solutions products and systems facilitate
 more rapid and less expensive drug discovery.
