Ariadne’s PathwayStudio® 4.0 Earns GeneChip-compatible™ Status
News May 02, 2006
Ariadne Genomics, Inc. has announced that it has joined the Affymetrix GeneChip-compatible Applications Program, which is designed to provide customers with a broad spectrum of software solutions for biomedical research and development.
Ariadne’s PathwayStudio® 4.0 pathway analysis software has earned GeneChip-compatible™ status.
As a GeneChip-compatible software provider, Ariadne is committed to integrating their entire pathway analysis product pipeline with the Affymetrix GeneChip technology.
PathwayStudio 4.0 (formerly marketed as PathwayAssist) allows life scientists to analyze and interpret gene expression microarray data in the context of biological pathways and to reconstruct regulatory networks from gene expression experiments.
The software comes with a database of over 1,000,000 molecular interaction facts extracted from the scientific literature and over 1,000 reconstructed pathways.
"We are delighted that PathwayStudio 4.0 has achieved GeneChip-compatible status with Affymetrix," said Dr. Ilya Mazo, president of Ariadne.
"Ariadne’s mission is to provide life scientists with tools and solutions to stimulate biomedical research and drug development."
"The integration between PathwayStudio and the Affymetrix GeneChip microarray platform is yet another vital milestone in the realization of our goal."
"Pathway-level annotation and functional analysis is fast becoming a standard part of gene expression microarray data analysis," said Steve Lincoln, vice president of Informatics at Affymetrix.
"The integration between the Affymetrix GeneChip platform and Ariadne’s PathwayStudio allows our mutual customers to extract the greatest value from their microarray data."
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.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
