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.
Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
4000-Year Old DNA Helps Track the Spread of Rice Farming in AsiaNews
Rice farming spread far and wide in ancient Southeast Asia, but how it got there has been a mystery. Now, a study of 4000-year-old DNA—a rare find in this region—suggests it came with farmers migrating from China, where rice farming originated.
