Internet Site for Scientists Licenses Lion s SRS Platform

NEW YORK, Jan 17 - Lion Bioscience said Wednesday it has licensed its SRS database integration platform to TheScientificWorld for use on its website.

TheScientificWorld, an Internet start-up that provides scientific information to researchers, will use SRS to power queries of text-based information and scientific articles on Scibase, its database of scientific articles, and the other news and information sections of its site. TheScientificWorld will upgrade its website to incorporate SRS. The parties did not disclose the financial terms of the agreement.

“Researchers will be able to use SRS to search multiple types of databases simultaneously including full text, bibliographic, datasets, and annotated images in a fast and integrated manner," Eric Tomlinson, CEO of TheScientificWorld, said in a statement.  

SRS has been installed at over 30 commercial sites and 100 academic sites around the world.

Celera Genomics, eBioinformatics, and the European Bioinformatics Institute have also incorporated SRS into their scientific web portals.

In November, Lion and Celera signed a three-year agreement to co-develop SRS across Celera's discoverylink platform, in order to improve its system’s ability to integrate and handle an ever-growing amount of data. Lion has said these developments to its system with Celera could translate to developments and improvemtns across all of SRS.
