Phase Genomics Wins $1.5M for Proximity Ligation-Based AMR Tracking

  08 January 2020

Seattle-based startup Phase Genomics announced Tuesday it has received a two-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to support the development of a rapid antimicrobial resistance tracking kit based on the firm’s proprietary high-throughput chromatin conformation, or Hi-C, proximity ligation technology.

The Phase II Small Business Innovation Research funds were awarded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The funding will support the development of a low-cost platform to detect antimicrobial resistance elements in microbial communities without the need for bacterial culture.
