Jubilant Licenses Path Art to Systems Biology Institute of Japan

NEW YORK, Aug. 19 (GenomeWeb News) - Jubilant Biosys of Bangalore, India said today it has licensed its PathArt pathway database to the Systems Biology Institute of Japan in Tokyo.


PathArt has more than 400 manually curated signaling and metabolic pathways, and will be compliant with systems biology markup language (SMBL), the company said. The database augments the compamy's other ones in proteins and small molecule areas.


[The] database provided by Jubilant Biosys will certainly accelerate our research activities, Hiraoki Kitano, the founder and head of The Systems Biology Institute in Japan, said in a statement. " In addition, their commitment for SBML compliance of their pathway database enables broad range of systems biology researchers to work on their high quality database."


The parties did not disclose the financial terms of the agreement.
