Ingenuity and Agilent to Offer Interoperability in Bioinformatics Software
News May 02, 2006
Genomics researchers will be able to exchange data between both applications, leveraging each system's ability to analyze high-volume gene expression data and to perform advanced biological pathway analysis.
"GeneSpring is designed to answer biological questions at the intersection of genomics, genetics, proteomics and biomarker screening," said Jordan Stockton, Agilent Informatics marketing manager.
"The integration with Ingenuity Pathways Analysis also supports our mutual customers by providing rigorous statistical analysis, followed immediately by a comprehensive exploration of relevant biological pathways. Ultimately, our users can address a more complete range of research questions."
"By integrating the Ingenuity Pathway Analysis solution with GeneSpring, our joint customers will have greater flexibility and bandwidth for analyzing and accessing their gene expression data," said Tuan Nguyen, VP, Partner and Professional Services of Ingenuity Systems.
"This collaboration is part of our strategy to seamlessly integrate Ingenuity Pathways Analysis into the natural workflow of our customers, allowing them to uncover mechanisms of action, predict potential toxicities and give biological meaning to their gene expression data with internal or third-party tools."
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
‘Good Cholesterol’ May Not Always be Good for Postmenopausal WomenNews
Postmenopausal factors may have an impact on the heart-protective qualities of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) – also known as ‘good cholesterol’ – according to a study led by researchers in the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.READ MORE
What Makes Good Brain Proteins Turn Bad?News
The protein FUS is implicated in two neurodegenerative diseases: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Using a newly developed fruit fly model, researchers have zoomed in on the protein structure of FUS to gain more insight into how it causes neuronal toxicity and disease.
