GeneData Releases Version 3.5 of Phylosopher

NEW YORK, Feb 21 – GeneData of Basel, Switzerland said Wednesday it had released version 3.5 of its GD Phylosopher gene function prediction software.

The latest version of the data analysis software is designed to help researchers compare some 47 microbial and higher eukaryotic genomes. The software also comes with a proprietary functional annotation database that contains reference information about these genomes.

The new version of the software also has features aimed at giving researchers a better understanding of biochemical reactions, pathways, and regulatory networks.

GeneData said that GD Phylosopher complements its Expressionist microarray data analysis system, which the company recently licensed to Novartis Pharma.
