Autoscribe Launches New Website
News Oct 11, 2013
Autoscribe has launched a new combined UK and US website ( www.autoscribe.co.uk and www.autoscribeinformatics.com) to reflect the worldwide nature of Autoscribe’s business. With a fresher, cleaner look, much improved navigation, additional content and more downloads, the site features a new ‘market’ section which allows visitors to see at a glance the applications of information management systems in different market areas, as well as a more in depth view of the Business Solutions that are available.
Another new section is devoted to information on the unique configuration capabilities of the Matrix family of LIMS. The ‘OneTime configuration tools’ are the lynch pin of the Matrix Gemini LIMS, making it highly configurable, adaptable and flexible, within a standard product core. These tools are used to create the initial configuration at implementation and can be used subsequently by either Autoscribe or customers’ staff to further configure or re-configure the system to keep it in step with any changes to the laboratory workflow or business practices.
The new site also has a stronger focus on real-life uses of Autoscribe products, with more case studies, and a glimpse of some of Autoscribe’s clients. With agreement from many customers in place, a comprehensive program is under way to produce a whole series of new case studies to further illustrate the diversity of applications. These will be added to the new site as they are completed.
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
