NHLBI Expands GeneGo's MetaCore to CIT, CCMD

NEW YORK, June 27 (GenomeWeb News) - the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has extended and expanded its multi-year MetaCore license from GeneGo to include other groups and departments, GeneGo said today.


The license will now cover NHLBI's core microarray group, the Center for Information Technology, and the Critical Care Medicine Department of the NIH Clinical Center. MetaCore will also be used in NHLBI's new systems biology group, GeneGo said.


NHLBI is using the MetaCore data mining software "to rationalize the extensive changes in gene expression due to experimental conditions or disease processes, and DNA sequence variations," GeneGo said.


Financial terms of the license were not disclosed.
