Emerging Company Profile Gene Logic: 'Molecular movies'

In November 1996, Gene Logic produced what it believes to be the world's first complete, quantitative picture of all the genes active in a human cell, or, as the company calls it, a "molecular topography."

By creating a series of topographies - which Gene Logic likens to creating a molecular movie - the company identifies changes in gene expression patterns as a disease develops and progresses in a specific cell or tissue type, across different cell types and in cells treated with various drugs or experimental compounds.
