NIH Licenses Active Motif's Software for Salivary Proteome Project

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health’s Center for Information Technology has licensed Active Motif’s software for use in the NIH’s Human Salivary Proteome Project, the company said today.
 
Under the agreement, NIH will use the AlmaKnowledgeServer 2 knowledge discovery software, which is based on the Spanish company Bioalma’s text mining system, over a multi-year period. NIH plans to use the AKS2 software to support the discovery of saliva-based diagnostic tests, the company said.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
