NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bioinformatics developer Genostar said today that animal health company Merial has purchased its data mining and analysis software.
Genostar said Merial will use its IOGMA 3.4 Metabolic Pathway Builder software for use in its studies of pathogens focused on viral, bacterial, and parasitic diseases in domestic and wild animals.
The company said the software includes three modules: GenoAnnot, ProteoAnnot, and PathwayExplorer. These are used together to analyze high-throughput bacterial ‘omics data.
The platform also includes the microB database, which includes ‘omics information sourced and standardized from a number of reference databases on over 450 microbial organisms.
The software also comes in a client-server version that allows collaborations using the same data, Genostar added.
