GeneGo Integrates MetaCore, MetaDrug with Open Source Cytoscape Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GeneGo said today it has integrated two of its data analysis software offerings with Cytoscape, an open source pathway-visualization package developed by the Institute for Systems Biology and other academic partners.
 
GeneGo said it is integrating its MetaCore 4.5 software, used in target selection and validation for toxicology, and MetaDrug 4.5, which is used to study the toxicity and biological effects of novel small-molecule compounds.
 
The company said plug-ins are available for network and molecular profiling analyses, new layouts, additional file format support and connection.
 
GeneGo first mentioned its plans to integrate its software with Cytoscape in July, when ISB licensed its MetaCore and 1-2-3 Workflow software.
