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."
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.
Fructose Formula Poses Risk to Babies With Metabolic DisorderNews
Babies with inherited intolerance of fructose face a risk of acute liver failure if they are fed certain widely available formulas containing fructose, pediatricians and geneticists are warning. Baby formula manufacturers should remove fructose or sucrose, or explicitly label their products to allow parents to avoid those sweeteners if necessary, the doctors say.
4000-Year Old DNA Helps Track the Spread of Rice Farming in AsiaNews
Rice farming spread far and wide in ancient Southeast Asia, but how it got there has been a mystery. Now, a study of 4000-year-old DNA—a rare find in this region—suggests it came with farmers migrating from China, where rice farming originated.
