BC Proteomics Network to Use GeneBio's Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A Canadian proteomics initiative will use Geneva Bioinformatics’ Phenyx software in its protein identification and characterization research, GeneBio said today.
 
The agreement allows the BC Proteomics Network, which includes researchers at the University of British Columbia and other BC institutions, to install the Phenyx software in its centralized server, giving the other members access to the platform as well.
 
The BCPN’s aim is to utilize BC’s proteomics resources, such as mass spectrometry labs and its talent pool of researchers, to promote awareness of proteomics in the province’s life science community through collaborative research programs, workshops, training awards, and other methods.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
