Scimagix, Roche in Protein Informatics Collaboration

NEW YORK, Dec. 12-Scimagix will collaborate with Roche to develop new proteomics data management systems, Scimagix said today.


Under the agreement, the bioinformatics company will provide the pharmaceutical company with systems to track, organize and analyze protein expression data. The partners will work together in a multi-year collaboration to develop unique image-based data management tools for proteomics.


Initially, Scimagix will supply its ProteinMine system to select proteins to be further analyzed through mass spectroscopy. The system, which can handle both image-based and non-image information, will be used to organize data from these experiments with information from 2-D gels and other proteomics techniques.


The partners did not disclose financial details of the collaboration.


Scimagix is based in San Mateo, Calif.
