Oregon Health and Science University Microarray Core Facility Licenses Metacore from Genego
News Nov 14, 2007
GeneGo, Inc. has announced that OHSU Affymetrix microarray core facility licensed a portfolio of its data analysis products. OHSU scientists will use MetaCore for pathway analysis; MetaDrug for chemogenomics, MapEditor for pathway editing and communication and MetaLink for adding their own interactions to MetaCore’s manually curated pathways.
The Affymetrix Microarray Core (AMC) facility provides RNA Expression Profiling and DNA Variation Analysis services using Affymetrix GeneChip® oligonucleotide arrays. DNA Variation services include genome wide SNP genotyping, copy number and LOH detection.
“We are very pleased to have the OHSU core microarray center as a GeneGo customer,” said Julie Bryant, Vice President of Business Development for GeneGo.
“OMICs core labs are our primary customers, as they provide both assays and analysis to the research communities at the universities. By having access to all of our tools OHSU will have a comprehensive platform for analyzing pathways, adding proprietary data through editing capabilities and easy sharing with colleagues by just right clicking on experiments or analyses.”
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
