NIH grants $1.8M to genomic analysis partnership
July 2013
SHARING OPTIONS:

ST. LOUIS—Partek Inc., in collaboration with the Kennedy Krieger Institute, has been awarded $1.8 million by the U.S. National Institutes of Health for the development of commercial software for the analysis of human genetic changes that will reveal the chromosomal abnormalities that lead to conditions such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Partek and Kennedy Krieger have collaborated before to develop a novel mathematical method that united two genotype association approaches to illuminate the opaque genetic distinction between individuals. The partners will leverage that research to focus on families with ASD in hopes of developing analysis tools capable of identifying chromosomal abnormalities that could enable ASD identification in individuals during infancy. The same analysis tools will also enable early diagnosis of mental health disorders such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
