Siemens and Biomax Partner in Gene Expression Simulation

NEW YORK, Aug. 18 (GenomeWeb News) - German companies Siemens and Biomax Informatics announced today that they will collaborate in the area of gene expression modeling and simulation.


Under the terms of the agreement, Siemens will use its BioSim gene expression simulator to uncover specific interdependencies in gene expression data, while Biomax will use its BioXM gene expression tool to place the correlations "in a relevant functional and biological context," the companies said in an official statement.


Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
