Rutgers teams with a biotech
Nexomics Biosciences, a New Jersey-based start-up biotechnology company, agreed to license the rights to a portfolio of intellectual property provided by Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

The recently formed company will have access to a suite of bioinformatics software and an early stage antiobiotic screening process. Additionally, Nexomics may use and further develop a new ribosomal RNA methyltransferase assay, an invention that will affect control of bacteria and antibacterial therapy.

Nexomics applies emergent technologies for drug discovery projects based on significant protein production, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and x-ray crystallography. It uses this process for identifying novel small molecule therapeutics.
