• Using Partek Software in Leukemia Research

    February 3, 2014

    A study by Alexander Thompson, PhD of the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, 
Queen’s University of differential gene expression in cytogenetically normal subtype of acute myeloid leukemia cells reveals a HOX/TALE signature that may have specific prognostic value. Direct gene targeting of HOXA/PBX3 sensitizes these cells to standard chemotherapy, laying a foundation for a novel therapeutic strategy.

  • Kennedy Krieger and Partek Incorporated Discover Novel Method to Reveal Genetic Relatedness Between Individuals

    November 15, 2011

    At a time when profound gaps remain in our understanding of how one person’s genes differ from another person’s, developing accurate methods to interpret the human genome is essential to uncover population history, population relationships and the genetic basis of some of the most common diseases affecting society.
