Oregon Health and Science University Microarray Core Facility Licenses Metacore from Genego
News Nov 14, 2007
GeneGo, Inc. has announced that OHSU Affymetrix microarray core facility licensed a portfolio of its data analysis products. OHSU scientists will use MetaCore for pathway analysis; MetaDrug for chemogenomics, MapEditor for pathway editing and communication and MetaLink for adding their own interactions to MetaCore’s manually curated pathways.
The Affymetrix Microarray Core (AMC) facility provides RNA Expression Profiling and DNA Variation Analysis services using Affymetrix GeneChip® oligonucleotide arrays. DNA Variation services include genome wide SNP genotyping, copy number and LOH detection.
“We are very pleased to have the OHSU core microarray center as a GeneGo customer,” said Julie Bryant, Vice President of Business Development for GeneGo.
“OMICs core labs are our primary customers, as they provide both assays and analysis to the research communities at the universities. By having access to all of our tools OHSU will have a comprehensive platform for analyzing pathways, adding proprietary data through editing capabilities and easy sharing with colleagues by just right clicking on experiments or analyses.”
Molecular biologists long thought that domains in the genome’s 3D organization control how genes are expressed. After studying highly rearranged chromosomes in fruit flies, researchers now reveal that while this is the case for some genes, their results challenge the generality of this for many others.READ MORE
