GenoLogics Sells Informatics Systems to Nevada, Windber Institutes

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GenoLogics has reached a joint development agreement with the University of Nevada and it is collaborating with the Windber Research Institute to develop an integrated platform using the company’s Biomedical Informatics suite, the company said.
The company said it is working with the University of Nevada’s Proteomics Center to deploy the Proteus centralized data management system, which enables collaboration through the company’s LabLink communication interface. 
The Nevada Proteomics Center offers proteomic and metabolomic services to researchers in Nevada.
The Windber Research Institute conducts translational research to identify clinical issues that could be addressed through the use of molecular and informatics approaches.
The company’s Biomedical Informatics suite includes integrated products for biospecimen management, clinical annotations management, and tools for enabling web access, study management, and electronic patient questionnaires.
Windber Research Institute CSO Richard Mural said the informatics solution “will allow us to integrate both discovery and clinical data into a single system for a holistic view, which is necessary to pursue the type of research we are doing.”
Financial terms of the agreements were not released.
