Ingenuity Expands Scope of Licensing Agreement with Daiichi
News Apr 26, 2006
Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) is a software application that is designed to enable researchers to model, analyze and understand the complex biological systems at the core of life science research.
IPA is deployed in most major pharmaceutical companies and hundreds of biotechnology companies and academic institutions globally.
It supports analysis of all high throughput analysis platforms and is used in virtually all areas of drug discovery and development from target identification and validation to biomarkers, predictive toxicology, and pharmacogenomics.
"Daiichi is one of the first Japanese Pharmaceutical companies to fully expand usage to a corporate wide license and we are very pleased that Daiichi has decided to broadly deploy IPA across its discovery and development sites," stated Peter DiLaura, Vice President, Sales and Customer Support.
"The Ingenuity product line enables IPA users to understand complex biology within their research, in addition to supporting the Bioinformatics team to further develop robust and proprietary computational solutions."
Ingenuity Pathways Analysis is available as a web-delivered, hosted, or deployed solution. Fully functional complimentary trials are available online.
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.
‘Good Cholesterol’ May Not Always be Good for Postmenopausal WomenNews
Postmenopausal factors may have an impact on the heart-protective qualities of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) – also known as ‘good cholesterol’ – according to a study led by researchers in the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.READ MORE
What Makes Good Brain Proteins Turn Bad?News
The protein FUS is implicated in two neurodegenerative diseases: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Using a newly developed fruit fly model, researchers have zoomed in on the protein structure of FUS to gain more insight into how it causes neuronal toxicity and disease.
