GeneBio Integrates Phenyx MS Software Into ISB's Trans Proteomic Pipeline

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Geneva Bioinformatics today said it has integrated its Phenyx MS platform into the Institute for Systems Biology’s Trans Proteomic Pipeline.
GeneBio’s Phenyx software is used to identify and characterize proteins and peptides from mass spectrometry. ISB’s TPP is an open-source analysis platform for unified storage and analysis of tandem mass spec data based on open XML file formats.
The companies said the integration will give TPP users “access to a powerful search engine” while giving Phenyx users the ability to process results “with a host of high-throughput proteomics analysis tools.”
