Beyond Genomics Licenses Database from Incellico

NEW YORK, March 7 - Beyond Genomics has licensed Incellico's Cell ontological database platform, Incellico said on Thursday.

BG plans to add the Cell technology to its bioinformatics suite BioSystematics to help it link experimental and archived genomic, proteomic, and metabolic databases.

 

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

According to Incellico, of Durham, NC, Cell "semantically integrates" data, from the genome to metabolic pathways. BG hopes the technology will "improve the effectiveness and throughput of our systems biology research in silico to more fully mine the data generated by our discovery platform."
