Rosetta Collaborates with Sage-N Research
News Apr 20, 2006
Rosetta Biosoftware and Sage-N Research, Inc. have announced a collaboration to establish interoperability between Rosetta Biosoftware's Elucidator® system for protein expression analysis and biomarker discovery and Sage-N Research's Sorcerer™ proteomic integrated data appliance to offer customers an advanced solution for protein expression research and protein identification.
The Rosetta Elucidator system is a scalable solution for managing and analyzing large volumes of proteomics data.
It includes raw data management, the PeakTeller™ processing module to identify differentially-expressed proteins, and analysis at the peptide and protein level, enabling researchers to generate a list of candidate biomarkers from mass spectrometry data.
The Sorcerer integrated data appliance from Sage-N Research is a compact analysis system that provides processing throughput for protein identification using patent-pending Pattern Match Accelerator™ hardware and systems technology.
"We are pleased to provide our mutual customers with automation and flexibility that will significantly increase productivity for protein biomarker discovery," said Yelena Shevelenko, vice president and general manager of Rosetta Biosoftware.
"By combining the Elucidator system's power to identify differentially-expressed proteins with the Sorcerer system's high throughput, high resolution sequence searching capabilities, we are offering our customers increased throughput through automation and more time to focus on relevant scientific issues instead of validating protein search results."
"Sage-N Research and Rosetta Biosoftware share the vision of high-throughput, easy-to-use proteomic data analysis solutions," remarked David Chiang, C.E.O. and Chairman of Sage-N Research.
"By combining the capabilities of these two products that are leaders in their own arenas, we offer the scientist a powerful and comprehensive environment for MS-MS based proteomic data analysis."
The benefits of the integration are immediately available to joint customers of the Sorcerer and Elucidator systems. Sage-N Research and Rosetta Biosoftware also intend to collaborate in supporting the combined solution for customers.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
Fructose Formula Poses Risk to Babies With Metabolic DisorderNews
Babies with inherited intolerance of fructose face a risk of acute liver failure if they are fed certain widely available formulas containing fructose, pediatricians and geneticists are warning. Baby formula manufacturers should remove fructose or sucrose, or explicitly label their products to allow parents to avoid those sweeteners if necessary, the doctors say.
