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."
Some MRSA infections could be tackled using widely-available antibiotics, suggests new research. A team of scientists used genome sequencing technology to identify which genes make MRSA susceptible to a previously defined combination of drugs. They identified a number of mutations centered around a protein known as a penicillin-binding protein 2a or PBP2a.
Bubble formation is typically a much more random process than liquid droplet formation, yet the generation of uniform drops and bubbles is very desirable in microfluidics. Researchers have now shown that under certain conditions, bubbles can also be coaxed to form spheres as perfectly matched as droplets.READ MORE
