GeneBio’s Phenyx Integrated with Institute for System Biology’s TPP
Product News Sep 14, 2007
Geneva Bioinformatics (GeneBio) SA and the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) has announced the successful integration of GeneBio’s Phenyx MS data analysis platform into the ISB’s Trans Proteomic Pipeline (TPP), an Open Source analysis platform for unified storage and analysis of tandem mass spectrometry data based on open XML file formats.
GeneBio says that, this integration that was rendered very straightforward thanks to Phenyx’s increased flexibility and the wealth of import/export formats it accepts brings TPP developers and users access to a powerful search engine while giving Phenyx users the freedom to automatically process results with a host of high-throughput proteomics analysis tools.
Developed in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), Phenyx is GeneBio’s renowned software platform for the identification and characterization of proteins and peptides from mass spectrometry data, specifically designed to meet the concurrent demands of high-throughput MS data analysis and dynamic results assessment while offering a flexible user experience and an adaptable architecture to help instill confidence in results assessment.
ISB’s TPP was one of the comprehensive tools suites to address the requirements of the proteomics community for standardized MS/MS data analysis and validation.
“Phenyx is a major player in the mass spectrometry field; an increasing number of TPP users are requesting the ability to validate Phenyx search results using the TPP tools,” said Dr. Eric Deutsch of the ISB.
“Our goal is to make the TPP an invaluable part of the analysis process for as many users as possible by ensuring it works well with other industry tools; the integration of Phenyx fulfils user expectations and extends the functionality of the TPP. The integration of Phenyx will improve confidence levels in protein and peptide identifications for all its users.”
