CytoGenomics to Support Affy, GenePix Data

NEW YORK, Sept. 9 (GenomeWeb News) - CytoGenomics's SilicoCyte 1.4 microarray platform will support the import of data from Affymetrix's MAS Suite 5.0 and Axon's GenePix Pro, CytoGenomics said today. 


The SilicoCyte update has additional normalization features and allows "easy" import of GAL files, the company said.


The data can also be stored in SilicoCyte's comprehensive data warehouse for mining and analysis "and will be extremely useful for Enterprisecustomers," said Pravin Kini, CytoGenomics chief scientific officer.
