Biomax Licenses Protein Prediction Algorithms from Brunak

NEW YORK, Aug. 5 (GenomeWeb News) - Biomax Informatics of Martinsried, Germany,  and Danish firm Brunak Research have signed a collaboration in which Biomax will incorporate protein prediction algorithms into its bioinformatics software, the companies said today.


The algorithms, which include SignalP, ChloroP, TargetP, NetPhos, NetOGlyc, NetNGlyc and TMHMM, predict the cellular locations of proteins, as well as their post-translational modifications. They were developed at the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis in Lyngby, Denmark, and Brunak research, which is headquartered in Copenhagen, licenses them out.


Academics can already use the protein prediction servers at CBS ( ) free of charge, but commercial users must install the algorithms in-house.


Now, the algorithms will be folded into Biomax's Pedant-Pro Sequence Analysis Suite and its ReqALLer Bioinformatics Tool Box, and will be included in the company's human genome database with the option to compare the predictions from these algorithms to results from other algorithms.
