Metabolon, Inc. has announced the grant of US Patent 8,131,473 “Data Analysis Methods for Locating Entities of Interest within Large Multivariable Datasets.”

The patent was issued on March 6, 2012 and is the sixth technology patent and nineteenth patent overall awarded to Metabolon.

The invention describes analysis methods and computational tools developed by Metabolon to quickly and accurately locate biochemicals, genes and proteins of interest in large multivariate data.

The use of genomics, proteomics and metabolomics to answer a variety of biological questions has increased dramatically over the last few years.

These ‘omics sciences generate massive amounts of data, and sifting through that data to identify biologically significant changes is a major rate-limiting step.

Through the implementation of these techniques, the relevant changes in transcripts, proteins and biochemicals in an experimental sample can be quickly and accurately identified.

This enables the interpretation of the results, and facilitates the understanding of biological mechanisms and modes of action.
