Japanese Research Institute to Distribute GeneBio s Proteomics Software

NEW YORK, Nov. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - GeneBio has signed a distribution deal for its mass spec protein-identification software with the Bioinformatics Institute for Global Good in Japan, the company said today.


Tokyo-based BiGG will start "an extensive distribution campaign" for GeneBio's Phenyx software in Japan, using its business relationships with Hitachi Software Engineering and Netwell, according to Geneva-based GeneBio.


BiGG, founded in 2002, focuses on protein research programs and has links both to academic institutions and commercial organizations. The agreement paves the way for the distribution of other GeneBio products in Japanthrough BiGG an its member companies, according to GeneBio.


GeneBio's Phenyx software was developed in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics and includes a scoring system developed at GeneProt in Geneva. It allows users to identify and characterize proteins and peptides from mass-spectrometry data.
