Besides patenting isolated therapeutic proteins and amino acid sequence based innovations, it is also evident that trend of protecting structural genomics
innovations has been increased significantly around the world.
Boston, MA, October 11, 2016 --(PR.com)-- The Structural Genomics
Consortium (SGC), a precompetitive public-private partnership that accelerates research in human biology and drug discovery through open science, has won the 2016 Oxford AHSN Public-Private Collaboration Award.
In a recent article in Nature (1), Aled Edwards, the chief executive of the Structural Genomics
Consortium (SGC), discusses how combining commercial and academic incentives and resources can improve science.

Large-scale biology (genomics, functional genomics, proteomics, structural genomics
, meta-bolomics, etc.)
While functional genomics focus on the functions of genes and gene networks, structural genomics
focus on the physical structure of the genome, aiming to identify, locate, and order genomic features along chromosomes.
Functional genomics involves developing and applying genome-wide experimental approaches to assess gene function by making use of the information and resources provided by structural genomics
, which is concerned with the sequence of genes.
Neuroscientist Dr Chas Bountra, head of the Structural Genomics
Consortium at Oxford University, who is organising the conference, believes the pharmaceutical industry is in crisis.
