Lion to Release Version 6.1 of SRS Platform

NEW YORK, March 27 – Lion Biosciences will release an updated version of its SRS data integration software at the end of the week, the company said Tuesday.

Among other improvements, the new SRS version 6.1 offers a full XML server, virtual libraries for added flexibility in presenting data, and a beta-version of a new tool for integrating relational databases.

“SRS 6.1 is a major advance in the delivery of powerful, customizable data integration software. The system will improve our customers’ ability to integrate different data sources and data analysis tools,” Thure Etzold, Lion's managing director, said in a statement.

The new version was introduced to Lion’s customers at the SRS User Meeting this week in Cambridge, UK, and will become available to all customers at the end of the week.

More than 50 companies and 100 academic institutions are users of the SRS system, which allows integration and searches of public and proprietary databases in a single web interface.
