Ariadne Licenses PathwayStudio® to UCB
News Jan 13, 2006
PathwayStudio comes with ResNet™ database of 500,000+ functional relationships and MedScan™ modules for automatic extraction of information from scientific literature.
The software is designed to enable life science researchers to interpret their own discoveries in the context of biological pathways and gene regulation networks; it makes it easy to identify relationships among proteins, small molecules, cell processes and treatments, reconstruct pathways from microarray and proteomics data, identify biomarkers, and model drug responses.
"PathwayStudio being a client-server application offers pharmaceutical research groups easy and flexible team-wide access to the database, as well as the power of whole PubMed data at their fingertips," commented Ilya Mazo, President of Ariadne Genomics.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
Gotta Sample 'Em All! Underwater Pokéball Captures Ocean LifeNews
A new device developed by Wyss Institute reseachers safely traps delicate sea creatures inside a folding polyhedral enclosure and lets them go without harm using a novel, origami-inspired design. The ultimate aim is to allow the sea creatures to be (gently) analyzed in high detail.READ MORE
