Genedata Provides Screening Analysis Software to NIH Chemical Genomics Center

NEW YORK, May 12 (GenomeWeb News) - Genedata will integrate its software for analyzing screening data with existing IT infrastructure from the NIH Chemical Genomics Center, the company said today.

 

NCGC, which is developing a compound library and will perform screening assays, chose Genedata's Screener "because the software has been developed and tested successfully in a high-throughput industrial setting," said Chritopher Austin, the center's director, in a statement.

 

Genedata Screener enables users to compare high-throughput screening data across different assays and to analyze dose-response test in high throughput.
