Finnish Red Cross Licenses Ariadne Genomics' Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Finnish Red Cross has licensed Ariadne Genomics’ Pathway Studio Enterprise software for use in modeling diseases and studying biological pathways, the company said today.
The Finnish scientists plan to use the software to extract information from text; to create databases about diseases, organisms, and cell types; and to study diseases and identify risk groups.
The software allows the scientists to “add and update databases, expand the database content, and work with our own and third-party data,” said Finnish Red Cross bioinfromatician Pauli Ojala.
Ariadne European Sales Manager Olivier Brun said that the Finnish scientists “have created several different pipelines that process literature and automatically update their custom human and non-mammalian databases."
The software includes the ResNet database, which includes more than one million unique molecular interactions and relationships from literature, in addition to tools to query the database, create molecular networks, and interpret gene expression data, the Rockville, Md.-based company said.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
