Freiburg Researchers to Use Ariadne's Software, Databases

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg has licensed Ariadne Genomics’ software platform and databases for use in its mammalian, worm, and plant research programs, Ariadne said today.
 
Under the license, Freiburg researchers will use Ariadne’s Pathway Studio, including MedScan, which extracts functional relationships from scientific texts.
 
The researchers also will use the ResNet Mammalian and Plant databases, which includes information from PubMed and other journals about molecular interactions and holds around 1.5 million unique relationships.
 
The information from peer-reviewed publications in the ResNet Mammalian and ResNet Plant database, as well as the visualization mechanism in Pathway Studio, make the technology “uniquely suited” for Freiburg’s use, according to Stefan Rensing, who is head of the Freiburg’s Data Management Core Facility.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.
