Confirmant Licenses Accelrys Software for Protein Atlas Annotation

NEW YORK, Feb. 11 - Confirmant has licensed Accelrys' GeneAtlas software for use in annotating its Protein Atlas of the Human Genome, the companies said today.


Confirmant, of Abingdon, UK, will use the software to functionally annotate protein sequences in the Protein Atlas.

The companies will jointly market the new add-on, which will be contained within Accelrys' Oracle-based Discovery Studio AtlasStore database.


The Protein Atlas of the Human Genome includes data collected by Oxford GlycoScience regarding 11,000 protein-coding genes and their expression products.


Confirmant, a bioinformatics joint venture between OGS and Marconi, was launched in June 2001.
