Gene Logic Integrates Partek Analysis Software with GeneExpress

NEW YORK, April 23 - Gene Logic and Partek, a statistical and pattern recognition software provider, have integrated Partek’s software with Gene Logic’s GeneExpress suite of databases, Partek said Monday. 

The integration will allow GeneExpress users to export gene expression data into Partek Pro 2000, a gene expression analysis program, and to save gene or sample sets that are classified or analyzed for statistical significance.

The parties did not disclose financial terms of the agreement.

"Gene Logic is committed to provide customers to the GeneExpress Suite and its GeneExpress 2000 software platform with powerful gene expression analysis tools," Victor Markowitz, chief information officer of Gene Logic, said in a statement.

"The seamless integration of Partek Pro 2000 with the GeneExpress 2000 platform, provides users with a valuable extension to the data analysis and visualization tools that currently comprise the GeneExpress 2000 software platform," he said. 

GeneExpress consists of BioExpress, which includes gene expression information from different normal and diseased tissues, ToxExpress, which includes toxicity markers derived from animal tissues as well as human and rat cell lines, and PharmExpress, which looks at the effects of therapeutic compounds on gene expression in human and animal tissues.

Partek, of St. Charles, Mo., provides software that can visualize and analyze numerical information on large amounts of genomic and proteomic data. The software can also be used in high throughput screening and computer based drug design.
