NCI Renews License to Genomatix Gene Expression Software and Databases

NEW YORK, Oct. 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Genomatix Software of Munich said last week that the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute has renewed its license for the company's Genomatix gene expression analysis software and databases.

 

Under the renewed agreement, NIH intramural researchers will continue to have access to Genomatix's software tools and databases, including ChipInspector, a new product for single-probe chip analysis that will be released later this year.
