Erasmus and Windber to Co-develop Data Warehousing Tool

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Erasmus University Medical Center and the Windber Research Institute will develop a translational medicine data warehousing product for clinical, imaging, and proteomic and genomic data, WRI announced yesterday.


The combined warehouse will run on Oracle and InforSense technologies, WRI said in a statement.


The nonprofit WRI, based in Pennsylvania, has a databank housing more than 19,000 breast disease samples as part of an existing relationship with Walter Reed's clinical breast care program.


Erasmus, based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, uses Affymetrix microarrays in many disease research areas, including pediatric and geriatric studies.
