NEW YORK, June 22 (GenomeWeb News) - Geneva Bioinformatics said today that KOOPrime, a Singapore-based provider of life science workflow software, will distribute its Phenyx proteomics software in Singapore, Malaysia, China, and Taiwan.


"Along with our office in Tokyo, this agreement with KOOPrime cements our presence in the Asian market and opens many new doors in terms of product exposure," said Nasri Nahas, CEO of GeneBio, in a statement.


The company opened its office in Tokyo just over a year ago.


GeneBio developed Phenyx, a software system for identifying proteins and peptides from mass spectrometry data, in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.


KOOPrime was established in 2000 to commercialize its KOOPlatform workflow-agent informatics system, which integrates components dealing with data collection, data warehousing, data mining, and data visualization.
