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.
