3rd Millennium gets grant for microarray system

Jan. 29, 2003 — 3rd Millennium Inc. said it received a second contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to develop an advanced microarray information system to support infectious disease research.

The $700,000 Small Business and Innovation Research (SBIR) contract allows the Cambridge, Mass.-based bioinformatics consulting firm to add an expression database with a laboratory information management system to the microarray platform. 3rd Millennium, which had developed a system with the ability to store minimal information about a microarray experiment, said the new platform provides researchers with specific, technical information for more detailed analysis, according to a news release.

The platform is intended to be an informatics resource for the Defense Department’s Defense Technology Area Plan in Infectious Diseases of Military Importance, the release said. The SBIR grant follows one issued last February to 3rd Millennium.
