Pathway Analysis Products by Ariadne to Feature Integrated Genomics Microbial Pathway Collection
Product News Jun 05, 2006
Ariadne has announced that the unique Metabolic Vision microbial pathway collection developed by Integrated Genomics is now available as an ancillary pathway database for its PathwayStudio® and PathwayExpert™ software.
The addition of Metabolic Vision collection expands the applications of PathwayStudio and PathwayExpert to include microbial pathway analysis for basic, medical and industrial microbiology, and food and environmental research in addition to mammalian pathway analysis.
Metabolic Vision is an extensive pathway collection comprised of 6000 curated metabolic and non-metabolic pathways together with detailed prokaryotic and eukaryotic functional overviews that place these pathways in a biochemical and metabolic context.
Abstracted from Integrated Genomics ERGO™ Bioinformatics suite, Metabolic Vision was developed as genomic annotations of a database of over 900 genomes across all domains of life.
Ariadne’s pathway analysis and visualization tools are designed to allow scientists to use the Metabolic Vision pathways to interpret microarray and proteomics data, classify and prioritize proteins, draw pathway diagrams, export, import and filter data, and automatically update pathways with newly published facts.
"We are delighted to expand our partnership with Integrated Genomics to include PathwayStudio (formerly marketed as PathwayAssist) and PathwayExpert," commented Ilya Mazo, President of Ariadne.
"Metabolic Vision significantly increases the scientific value of our products, adding curated microbial and fungal pathway data to our eukaryotic molecular interaction databases for scientists investigating general microbiology, pathogenecity, antibiotics, and fungal microbiology."
"Ariadne’s tremendous tools for pathway visualization and analysis fundamentally expand the scientific application of the pathway data compiled in our ERGO™ genomic database," said John Elling, President and CEO of Integrated Genomics.
PathwayStudio is available as a desktop or client-server solution for individual scientists and workgroups.
PathwayExpert is an integrated web-based pathway informatics platform. Ariadne pathway software is traditionally supplied with ResNet database of over a million functional relationships for human, rat, mouse, as well as databases for four model organisms.
