Synamatix Announces Licensing of SynaBASE to Washington University
News Apr 05, 2006
Synamatix has announced that Washington University Genome Sequencing Center (WUGSC) has licensed SynaBASE™ and associated applications for use in high-throughput genomic analysis for internal research projects.
The Center will also apply selected Synamatix applications towards enhancing quality control of data from newly sequenced genomes.
The SynaBASE database platform is a novel approach towards enhancing the scalability, sensitivity and performance of genomics research without necessarily requiring incremental utilization of specialist computer hardware.
Dr. Jarret Glasscock, who heads the computational biology group at WUGSC stated, “We are excited about the potential of applying SynaBASE towards our larger scale tasks as well as addressing some novel areas which take advantage of the SynaBASE approach.”
Dr. Arif Anwar, Vice President of Synamatix said, “It is particularly encouraging to welcome WUGSC as a partner and user as they have identified numerous additional applications for the SynaBASE platform. We are looking forward to developing a mutually beneficial partnership which can deliver tangible advances in genome research.”
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
