GeneGo's MetaCore Fully-Compatible with Agilent's GeneSpring GX
News Jun 08, 2006
Users of both will enjoy the interoperability between the two systems as well as the workflow for statistical and functional analysis of gene expression data.
Agilent's GeneSpring is a bioinformatics solution for microarray analysis and data management.
MetaCore is the functional data mining platform designed for the analysis of different types of experimental data in the context of pathways, networks, cellular processes, diseases and toxic categories.
"With this relationship, we respond to multiple customer requests for integration with GeneSpring," said Julie Bryant, vice president of Business Development at GeneGo.
"GeneGo has an open, market-driven partnering philosophy, and we are happy that Agilent has a similar viewpoint."
"We look forward to receiving more customer feedback and further developing our systems' interoperability."
"The use of informatics to enable life science research has changed dramatically in the last 18 months," said Jordan Stockton, Agilent Informatics marketing manager.
"Today, researchers demand applications that allow them to pool evidence from as many sources as possible."
"The integration of GeneSpring and MetaCore allows leading scientists to rapidly synthesize information about pathways and molecular interactions with those from microarray technologies."
3-D Printed Sugar Scaffolds Offer Sweet Solution for Tissue EngineeringNews
University of Illinois engineers built a 3-D printer that offers a sweet solution to making detailed structures that commercial 3-D printers can’t: Rather than a layer-upon-layer solid shell, it produces a delicate network of thin ribbons of hardened isomalt, the type of sugar alcohol used to make throat lozenges.READ MORE
Schizophrenics' Blood Contains RNA From More MicrobesNews
The blood of schizophrenia patients features genetic material from more types of microorganisms than that of people without the debilitating mental illness, research at Oregon State University has found. What’s not known is whether that’s a cause or effect of the severe, chronic condition that strikes about one person in 100.READ MORE
Faulty Gene Leads to Alcohol-Induced Heart FailureNews
A faulty gene interacts with alcohol to accelerate heart failure in susceptible patients, a study suggests. This dangerous interaction can occur even when only moderate amounts of alcohol have been consumed.READ MORE
