Hospital Will Use Xpogen Bioinformatics Software in Psychiatric Research

NEW YORK, Feb. 6 - Bioinformatics company Xpogen has licensed its PathlinX 3.0 software to McLean Hospital in Belmont, Mass., the firm said today.

 

PathlinX "will help us uncover differences in gene-to-gene relationships between healthy and diseased brain tissues to understand the molecular mechanisms of schizophrenic and bipolar disorders," said Francine Benes, director of the Laboratory of Structural Neuroscience at McLean Hospital.


According to Cambridge, Mass.-based Xpogen, the PathlinX software was designed to identify differentially co-expressed genes in two-state method-of-action experiments.
