Myriad Proteomics Buys a TimeLogic DeCypher

NEW YORK, June 3 -- Myriad Proteomics has purchased a DeCypher bioinformatics system from Time Logic, the companies said today.

 

Myriad Proteomics, a private company based in Salt Lake City, will use the field programmable gate array-based system to help analyze protein interaction data it generates with yeast-two-hybrid and mass spectrometry experiments.

 

The system will help the company's researchers "piece together hundreds of thousands of DNA fragments to identify where in the human genome the interacting sequences can be mapped to and what alternatively spliced form they are in," said Jake Yue Chen, head of computational proteomics at Myriad Proteomics.

 

According to Myriad Proteomics, the DeCypher system, implemented within a Sun V880 server, reduced the time required for hidden Markov model searches from nine hours to less than five minutes.
