eBioscience Partners with The Immunological Genome Project
As immune cell populations are continually characterized, it becomes increasingly important to understand them at the level of their gene expression. The Immunological Genome Project is a multi-center, collaborative study that was initiated to define, through the use of microarray analysis, the gene expression profiles of key immunological cell types in the mouse. Cell subsets from all of the major immune populations have been sorted by flow cytometry, with rigorously defined phenotypic criteria, and analyzed by microarray analysis. Through this analysis it has been possible to determine not only individual cell expression profiles, but also the gene expression relationships that exist between subsets within a lineage and relationships between different lineages.
eBioscience is proud to be the primary provider of flow cytometry reagents in support of the Immunological Genome Project.
