News Feb 19, 2008
GeneGo, Inc. announced that GlaxoSmithKline has extended their licensing agreement with GeneGo and have added additional capability. This will provide GlaxoSmithKline researchers with global access to MetaCore, MapEditor and MetaBase.
MetaCore is GeneGo’s flagship platform for functional analysis of biological OMICs data featuring a comprehensive collection of pathway maps and network models for cellular processes and common diseases.
MetaCore is used for target identification, validation, biomarker discovery and knowledge mining. GlaxoSmithKline will also use the platform as a repository of all types of experimental data as well as resulting analyses.
All of this information can be shared with individuals or groups. MetaBase is direct access to the manually curated database of pathways, networks, ontologies, medicinal chemistry and diseases covering human, mouse and rat. MapEditor is a powerful research tool for creating intereractive custom maps which amalgamate MetaBase knowledge content with proprietary information and data.
“We have a good working relationship with GlaxoSmithKline developing new products such as our pay as you go 1-2-3 Workflow,” said Julie Bryant, GeneGo’s VP of Business development. “We will continue to work closely developing new functionality, tools and content for GlaxoSmithKline.”
