|International Research Center Launches Biotech Domain Name Auction|
PHOENIX (October 1, 2001) 2001 International Research Center has launched the Great Millennium Biotech Domain Name Auction bringing an essential and exceptional collection of core domain names to market. The limited run auction offers 174 biotechnology-oriented domain names organized into 60 related groups covering the full breadth of the biotech, medical, and genetic landscapes. Most lots include sets of multiple related domain names offering added strategic identity, branding, and intellectual property protection potential. The auction will unfold online through December 14 at http://www.researchedge.com/BiotechDNA/.
Generative domain names such as Genics.com, Genocon.com, Genogen.com, and GenoGenic.com remain short and generic indicating a relation to genetic interests without specificity. A number of lots include some two-dozen variants related to the mapping of the human genome sequence such as HumanGeneticCode.com, HumanGenomeCode.com, HumanGeneticProject.com, HumanGeneticIndex.com, HumanGenomeDirectory.com, and HumanDNAIndex.com. Other names may appear more humorous as they play on the themes and memes of our contemporary genetic fixations including FieldOfGenes.com, SpliceOfLife.com, SpliceBoys.com, SendInTheClones.com, GeneDreams.com, BioGenX.com, and PharmaSutra.com among others.
Mark Goldstein, President of International Research Center said, "Now that the human genome sequence has been mapped, development of genetic therapies and cloning have begun in earnest, nanotechnology is becoming practical, and the world will never be the same. Those looking to stake their claim on the Internet for the exciting times ahead have undoubtedly found few names if any still available. Even though new domain extensions will be opening up, dot com names will remain the most obvious, the most commonly recognized, and like real estate, they're just not making any more."
Other names available in this auction further chart the biotech space such as AllAboutBiotechnology.com, Bioneering.com, BiotechBreakthroughs.com, BraveNewBiotech.com, GeneticFuture.com, GeneGenesis.com, and GeneticRevolution.com. Treatment resources can find a cyber-home at BiotechTherapy.com, DrGenics.com, GenoScreen.com, GenoTherapy.com, MyTherapeutics.com, TherapeuticSearch.com, MajorSymptoms.com, GenoBot.com, and ImmunoBot.com.
And anticipating the fusion of neural and biologic materials and organizational design to computer technology, names such as BioSilicon.net, BiotechChip.com, BioMEMSbot.com, NeuroSilicon.com, NeuroNetworking.com, CellularComputing.com, and HybridBiocomputing.com are also included.
Those interested in details about all the names and lots being offered may view the Auction Lots page online at http://www.researchedge.com/biotechDNA/lots.html or download the full auction brochure as a PDF file including the striking cover art by Vertigo Interactive (http://www.vertigointeractive.com/) directly from the auction site at http://www.researchedge.com/biotechDNA/BiotechDNA.pdf.
