08:44 EDTTINYHarris & Harris notes Metabolon's collaboration agreement with HLI
Harris & Harris notes the announcement by its portfolio company, Metabolon, that it has signed an agreement with newly-launched Human Longevity Inc., or HLI, whereby Metabolon will provide biochemical profiling services to assist HLI in its mission to address diseases of aging by building the world's largest and most complete human genotype, microbiome and phenotype database. In the initial term of the agreement, Metabolon will perform small molecule analysis of 10,000 subjects and collaborate with HLI to map changes in the small molecules to end points of disease and gene mutations. Under the agreement, Metabolon will apply its metabolomics technology to augment the genetic and microbiome information HLI is collecting. Metabolon's approach identifies the complement of metabolites present in a human biological specimen. Metabolomics is important because quantifying and understanding the full picture of circulating biochemicals in the body can help researchers get a clearer picture of that individual's health status and provide markers and pathways associated with disease and drug action. In addition, Metabolon will collaborate with HLI to identify small molecule biomarkers of disease, which Metabolon may then use to develop small molecule diagnostic tests.

10:27 EDTTINYHarris & Harris says D-Wave enters into multi-year deal with Lockheed Martin
Harris & Harris Group (TINY) notes that its portfolio company, D-Wave Systems, Inc., announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Lockheed Martin (LMT) to upgrade the company's 512-qubit D-Wave Two quantum computer to the new D-Wave 2X system with 1,000+ qubits. This represents the second system upgrade since Lockheed Martin became D-Wave's first customer in 2011 with the purchase of a 128-qubit D-Wave One system. The agreement includes the system, maintenance and associated professional services. The new system will be hosted at the University of Southern California-Lockheed Martin Quantum Computation Center, which first began exploring the power of quantum computing with the D-Wave One, the world's first quantum computer. The installation of the D-Wave 2X system is expected to be completed in January 2016.
