University of Nevada Deploys Proteus by GenoLogics for their Data Management System
News Aug 14, 2008
GenoLogics has announced it is working with the University of Nevada’s Proteomics Center to deploy its lab and scientific data management system.
The Nevada Proteomics Center provides high quality, high-throughput proteomic and metabolomic services to researchers in Nevada, including mass spectral analyses for small molecules and Edman protein sequencing. The Nevada Proteomics Core receives financial support from Nevada INBRE, a program sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.
Proteus combines the strength of a multi-science platform while maintaining its application features for proteomics research. It improves lab efficiency by automating data capture from instrument and software integrations and by seamlessly tracking projects, samples and results.
As a ready-to-use solution, Proteus can be deployed within weeks, while also being configured for each lab’s new technologies, workflows and user-level preferences.
In addition to providing a centralized data management system, Proteus enables collaboration with its secure online communication interface called LabLink. As a recipient of an INBRE grant, the institution can easily facilitate collaboration with client groups, as well as publish timely reports for the NIH.
Proteus operates on a highly configurable and adaptable platform that can support many sciences across multiple facilities. The platform includes features such as the Adaptive Reporting Framework, which allows customers to integrate data from different sources and enhance their scientific data analysis.
In a new study in cells, University of Illinois researchers have adapted CRISPR gene-editing technology to cause the cell’s internal machinery to skip over a small portion of a gene when transcribing it into a template for protein building. This gives researchers a way not only to eliminate a mutated gene sequence, but to influence how the gene is expressed and regulated.
Researchers published today a detailed description of the complete genome of bread wheat, the world's most widely-cultivated crop. This work will pave the way for the production of wheat varieties better adapted to climate challenges, with higher yields, enhanced nutritional quality and improved sustainability.
