AgResearch to use SpectralWorks Software for Metabolomics Research
News Nov 18, 2009
AgResearch Limited, New Zealand’s largest Crown Research Institute (CRI) has entered into an agreement with SpectralWorks Limited for the supply and potential further development of their AnalyzerPro® MS Data Mining Software.
Based at the Grasslands Research Centre in Palmerston North, their Metabolomics Scientists will use the data mining capabilities of AnalyzerPro® for both GC-MS and LC-MS research projects for the benefit of the agricultural sector within New Zealand.
Scott Campbell, Director of SpectralWorks, says “We are very pleased to be associated with AgResearch with their vision to be the world’s foremost pastoral sector research and development organization.”
AgResearch is an independent, Crown-owned research and development company focused on creating value in New Zealand’s pastoral and biotechnology sectors.
Richard Curtis, Commercial Team Leader of the Applied Biotechnology Group said “The agreement with SpectralWorks is a significant step forward in our ability to develop systems to provide metabolomic analyses and services to the agriculture and biotechnology sectors in New Zealand and internationally. It provides options to use and develop innovative tools alongside our world-class metabolomics science team and we look forward to working with SpectralWorks to further develop this capability.”

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.
