Ingenuity and Integromics Offer Integration for Comprehensive Genomics Analysis
News Jun 08, 2009
Integromics, S.L. and Ingenuity Systems announced the integration of RealTime StatMiner® and Integromics Biomarker Discovery™ (IBD) for TIBCO Spotfire® with Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA). The resulting platform provides a solution for researchers to visualize and statistically assess genomics data, and then identify relevant biological processes and pathways.
Researchers can now leverage a streamlined workflow to send the data from RealTime StatMiner®, a step-by-step workflow-oriented solution for RT-qPCR data analysis, and IBD for TIBCO Spotfire® , an application to pre-process, normalize, and interpret raw microarray gene expression data, directly into IPA for better modeling, analysis, and understanding of their biological data.
"Integromics' data analysis solutions have been well adopted in the market as easy to use tools for researchers to analyze their expression data for statistical and biological significance," said Alberto Pascual, VP, Research and Development, Integromics S.L. "Once significant genes are identified, researchers can now easily leverage the analysis capabilities and content in IPA to gain a deeper understanding of biological context and functions involved in their dataset."
"Our main objective is to provide our joint customers with relevant workflows that help them best understand their gene expression data," said Tuan Nguyen, VP, Partner and Professional Services, Ingenuity Systems. "We felt it was important to provide a streamlined way for researchers to move from raw data analysis to understanding relevant biology. RealTime StatMiner and IBD for TIBCO Spotfire together with IPA offer a complete and reliable platform to provide researchers with confidence in their data analysis and interpretation."
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
