Genedata and GeneBio to Integrate Proteomics-Analysis Tools

NEW YORK, Oct. 26 (GenomeWeb News) - Genedata is integrating its Genedata Expressionist tool with Geneva Bioinformatics SA's Melanie/ImageMaster 2D Platinum tool, Genedata said today.


The Expressionist software automates analysis from sample validation to biological interpretation and results management. With the Melanie two-dimensional gel-electrophoresis analysis, researchers can automate proteomics data analysis.


The companies plan to eventually incorporate the Expressionist tool with GeneBio's Phenyx mass spectrometry data-analysis platform, said Nasri Nahas, GeneBio's chief executive officer, in a statement.
