Aurora Biosciences Corp ABSC April 21 2000 This is one of those picket and shovel companies in the Biotechnology sector ABSC designs and develops drug discovery technologies and services Aurora Biosciences is developing a system using fluorescent assay technologies and ultra-high-throughput screening systems UHTSS to allow researchers to overcome many limitations of traditional drug discovery processes Auroras functional genomics technology can successfully analyze over half a billion discrete cells derived from 20 million independent GenomeScreenTM clones in one day Its GenomeScreenTM technology acts as a search engine to rapidly scan the genome of living human cells to find genes associated with specified diseases or physiological processes ABSC has technology capable of searching through expansive libraries of compounds to identify those that might lead to new medicines This enables Aurora to rapidly identify commercially relevant genes and to directly develop screens for drug discovery faster and more efficiently than existing methods To date Aurora has filed for patent protection on over 100 previously unknown gene sequences including their use for compound screening human diagnostics and drug discovery Genome what is it genome - set of chromosomes the full complement of genetic information that an individual organism inherits from its parents especially the set of chromosomes and the genes they carry A genome is the complete collection of an organisms genetic material The human genome is made of about 50000 to 100000 genes located on the 23 pairs of chromosomes in a human cell A single human chromosome may contain more than 250 million DNA base pairs and it is estimated that the entire human genome consists of about 3 billion base pairs Genetic information is found in each cell of the body encoded in the chemical deoxyribonucleic acid DNA The ultimate goal of genomic mapping and sequencing is to associate specific human traits and inherited diseases with genes at locations on the chromosomes The successful completion of the genome project
