NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Chinese State Key Laboratory of Proteomics has licensed Geneva Bioinformatics’ protein identification platform for use in its research efforts, GeneBio said today.
Under the agreement, the Beijing-based institute will use the Phenyx software, which GeneBio developed through a collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, in various proteomics research projects led by Fuchu He, who is co-chair of the Human Proteome Organization’s Human Liver Proteome Project.
The Phenyx software is used to identify and characterize proteins and peptides from mass spectrometry data.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
The Key Lab’s research projects include studies of disease, systems biology, and novel proteomics investigations, and it conducts various proteomics efforts involving protein expression, modification, bioinformatics, localization, functional genomics, and protein engineering.
