News Feb 11, 2009
GeneGo, Inc. has announced that Becker Medical Library at Washington University in St. Louis has licensed MetaCore. The Becker Medical Library Bioinformatics@Becker program is a university wide resource which provides bioinformatics support for researchers and students.
MetaCore is a data mining tool that provides users with easy access to up to date pertinent pathway information. Researchers can run simple searches as well as very specific Boolean queries and have answers in seconds or minutes rather than weeks and months using traditional methods.
MetaCore can also be used for pathway analysis of all kinds of experimental data from gene expression, micro RNA to assay data as well as biomarker studies.
"Becker Medical Library at Washington University in St. Louis is an important customer for GeneGo as we build up the number of libraries using GeneGo products," said Julie Bryant, GeneGo's VP of Business development. "Libraries are the heart of most academic centers and an excellent resource for PI's, researchers and students where systems biology comes together with all types of experimental data, biologists, chemists and pharmacologists and therapeutic focuses."
