Research Consortium to Use GeneGo s MetaCore in Nutrigenomic Research

NEW YORK, Nov. 14 (GenomeWeb News) - GeneGo expanded its partnership with European research group TNO into a consortium of other nutrigenomics researchers, the company announced today.


The consortium will consist of 23 universities and research institutes active in nutrigenomics research, including employees from TNO, an independent nutrition research institute, the Dutch Nutrigenomics Consortium, and the European Nutrigenomics Organization.


Consortium members will use GeneGo's MetaCore 3.0 software to build metabolic/signaling networks with experimental data and to share experiments and results with each other.


"Upon our request, GeneGo has extended its software with a metabolomics parser, allowing simultaneous visualization of gene expression and metabolite concentration in the same pathways," Ben van Ommen, responsible for the nutrigenomics activities at TNO and director of NuGO, said in a statement.
