Discovery and analysis of human genetic material is about to become more rapid and more comprehensive, according to scientists at Digital Gene Technologies in La Jolla, Calif.

Dedicated to the goal of expressing and comparing the full range of messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules within a human cell, DGT is the brainchild, appropriately, of a genetically close pair: brothers Robert Sutcliffe, formerly a senior congressional staffer and attorney at Brobeck, Phleger and Harrison in Los Angeles; and J. Gregor Sutcliffe, principal inventor of DGT's technology and a member of the Molecular Biology Department at Scripps Research Institute.
