CORRECTED: Genometrix Unveils Bioinformatics Tool for Gene Expression Analysis

This story has been corrected from a previous version, which stated that VistaLogic would be sold separately from its other services.

NEW YORK, March 1 - Genometrix of The Woodlands, Texas said Thursday it had released VistaLogic Information System, a bioinformatics solution designed to help researchers analyze gene expression and genotyping data.

Genometrix said that VistaLogic would be made available along with its microarray services. The software will not be sold separately. 

The company, which recently withdrew its planned initial public offering due to poor market conditions, said that VistaLogic was designed to handle the large number of data points generated by high-throughput microarray-based genomic studies.

VistaLogic aims to help researchers assimilate data from multiple experiments, combine extensive sample information with array results, and analyzing both gene expression profiles and SNP frequencies within one application.
