Confirmant Licenses Proteomics Database to University of Pennsylvania

NEW YORK, Jan. 13-The University of Pennsylvania has bought a license for Confirmant's proteomics database, the company said today.


The database, called 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.


The company did not reveal the cost of the license.
