Lion to Design Web Portal for Derwent s Databases of 1.6M Sequences

NEW YORK, Jan. 22 - Lion Bioscience will design a Web portal for Derwent Information's genetic sequence databases, the two companies said on Tuesday.


The Derwent databases, GENESEQ and GENESEQ FASTAlert, collect and annotate patented genetic sequences. As of November 2001, the company said its database included 1.6 million sequences from 50,500 individual patents.


Lion will apply its SRS data integration platform to design the portal.


Derwent Information collects scientific patent information from 40 patent authorities and more than 1,200 scientific journals worldwide, and organizes and annotates that information.


Derwent is a subsidiary of the Thomson Corporation, the international business information company. It is based in London.
