Working in collaboration with Dr. Colleen Doherty’s lab at North Carolina State University, Mimetics researchers have shown for the first time that warm nighttime temperatures disturb the circadian patterns of gene expression in rice plants, leading to depressed yields. This effort involved a careful study of time series transcriptional data from the entire rice genome. […]

At the N.C. Biotechnology Center Professional Forum on May 1, 2019, Mimetics presented its work with Dr. Colleen Doherty of N.C. State University on the “Effects of Warm Night Time Temperatures due to Climate Change on the Circadian Gene Expression Patterns of Rice Plants.”
Mimetics is working with Dr. William Kraus and his group at the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute to develop new assays for characterizing human circadian patterns.
Mimetics is pleased to announce that Dr. Jacob Pritt is joining our team as a computational scientist. Jacob comes to Mimetics after earning his PhD in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins. Jacob’s research has focused on improving the scalability and accuracy of sequencing analysis tools in the context of increasingly large experiments.
Mimetics is working with Dr. Ralph Dean, an expert on fungal diseases in crop plants, to identify early transcriptional responses to fungal infection.
Mimetics is pleased to announce that Precision fermentation, Inc. (“PFI”), a company that Mimetics has incubated to develop a system for monitoring beer fermentations, is now an independent entity with its own funding and management. Mimetics wishes the new company well and looks forward to great things from PFI.
Mimetics is working with Dr. Colleen Doherty, an expert on abiotic stress on a project to study the effects of heat stress due to climate change on rice plants and their productivity.
Mimetics has combined its laboratory and corporate offices and moved to Research Triangle Park. We are now in the old Hamner Building on Davis Drive.
Mimetics is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Phase I SBIR grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This award, which falls under the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics funding program, will assist us in two major ways. First it will help in the development of our newest software and algorithms that assist […]
Dr. Ashlee Valente is our newest hire at Mimetics. Dr. Valente earned her B.S. and M.S. in Bioinformatics at Rochester Institute in Technology and completed her doctoral studies at Duke University in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Ashlee’s doctoral thesis work focused on the development of statistical models to improve computational pre-processing of transcriptomics and proteomics data. […]
