NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bayer CropScience has licensed Ariadne Genomics’ molecular analysis software and Integrated Genomics’ Metabolic Vision database for its research into plant stress reactions, Ariadne said yesterday.
The agreement covers Ariadne’s Pathway Studio platform, and includes the ResNet Plant database and the MedScan information extraction module.
The MedScan module is used to customize Ariadne’s standard ResNet Plant and ResNet Mammalian databases to create new databases for particular research programs, Ariadne Senior Director of Sales John Clouston said in a statement.
The Metabolic Vision database, which Ariadne distributes under an agreement with Integrated Genomics, is used to study bacterial and fungal pathways.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
