Applied Biosystems Will Use AnVil Systems To Find Predicted Genes

NEW YORK, June 12-AnVil and Applied Biosystems will work together on a gene validation project that seeks to verify genes that have been predicted but not yet identified.


AnVil will apply its visualization and analysis tools to the database of human genome information developed by Celera Genomics that is now held by Applied Biosystems.


The project seeks to resolve how many of these potential genes are actual coding regions, potentially providing new insight into the total number of human genes.


"All signs seem to indicate that these genes exist, but there is not enough information to be conclusive," said AnVil marketing director William Wiegler. "ABI is looking for additional tools and expertise to analyze the data and come to more conclusive results. That's where we fit in."
