Rosetta Licenses Affymetrix APIs to Improve Platform Interoperability

NEW YORK, Rosetta Biosoftware said today that it has licensed the application programming interfaces for Affymetrix' software systems and data files to improve interoperability between Rosetta's software and the Affy microarray platform.


Rosetta said it has licensed the APIs as well as the content that Affymetrix uses to annotate its arrays in order to ensure compatibility with the Affymetrix format. Affy customers will be able to automatically retrieve and store annotations related to the company's microarrays with Rosetta's software.


Rosetta will also redistribute GeneChip microarray pattern files with its Resolver and Luminator systems, which the company said will allow mutual customers to more conveniently load and analyze GeneChip array experimental data.
