Lion, Silicon Genetics to Integrate Software

NEW YORK, June 3 - Silicon Genetics and Lion Bioscience said today that they have begun a multi-year joint development and marketing collaboration centered around the integration of their software products: Silicon Genetics' GeneSpring and Lion's SRS and Target Engine.


Initially, the integration will allow users of the GeneSpring gene expression analysis platform to access data stored in Lion's SRS integration platform. This will allow scientists to include information from both public and proprietary sources in their gene expression analysis, the companies said.


Lion will also integrate GeneSpring software with its upcoming Target Engine drug discovery software platform, and will be able to co-market GeneSpring along with SRS and Target Engine.
