Integrated Genomics Licenses ERGO Database to Denmark s Chr. Hansen

NEW YORK, Dec. 3 (GenomeWeb News) - Integrated Genomics of Chicago has licensed its ERGO database to Chr. Hansen, a Danish food-ingredients company.


Chr. Hansen will use the database, which contains data on more than 700 microbial genomes, biochemical information, genetic data, and pertinent literature. The company will use the tool to study naturally occurring micro-organisms that live in the human gut, and to assist its efforts in developing new food ingredient products.


Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
