IBM to Co-Develop Repository for Storing Raw Proteomics Data with Indigo BioSystems ...

NEW YORK, May 18 (GenomeWeb News) - IBM and Indigo BioSystems are co-developing a public proteomics database by using IBM's hardware and Indigo's archiving technology, the companies said yesterday.

 

The model database will store raw human proteomics data from a variety of instruments using opens standards developed by the Proteomics Standards Initiative of the Human Proteome Organization and web services to access the data. The information will be available to researchers worldwide for data mining.

 

The archive will use IBM's Linux on Power hardware, DB2 database, and WebSphere application server, as well as Indigo's True Blue archive technology. Indigo, based in Indianapolis, first developed the technology to manage data of a large pharmaceutical drug disposition group, and later applied it to proteomics.
