Genedata Collaborates with Kluyver Centre for Genomics of Industrial Fermentation
News Jun 16, 2006
Genedata has announced its collaboration with the Netherlands’ Kluyver Centre. The Swiss bioinformatics company will support high throughput genomics data analysis and result sharing among the consortium’s 9 interdisciplinary research partners.
The Kluyver Centre brings together fermentation experts from industry and academia to enhance this lucrative industrial sector.
Research focuses on fermentation in yeast, filamentous fungi and lactic acid bacteria and involves sequencing, genome-wide functional studies and strain and process design.
Genedata’s computational solutions will support all aspects of this research program.
Professor De Winde, business director of the Kluyver Centre, explained, "We needed a research informatics partner able to support a complete systems biology workflow."
The consortium will use Genedata Phylosopher® and Expressionist® to support central data storage and provide automated workflows to integrate transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic data.
"We will be able to pool genomics expertise across the entire Kluyver Centre network using Genedata’s standardised and integrated informatics resources," explained Professor Pronk, scientific director of the Kluyver Centre.
"We are proud to collaborate with this world class public-private research consortium," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata AG.
Genedata currently supports several research consortia in Europe and has developed computational solutions tailored towards multi-site, multi-year research programs.
Dr. Pfannes added, "Our computational solutions anticipate the evolving needs of research groups that adopt a systems biology approach."
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
