NEW YORK, Nov. 30 (GenomeWeb News) - The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York has signed an agreement with German informatics firm Genomatix to use its GenomatixSuite database and analysis tool for gene-regulatory networks, Genomatix said today.
Under the terms of the agreement, Munich-based Genomatix will provide all MSKCC clinical and research staff, fellows, and students with full access to GenomatixSuite. MSKCC's bioinformatics core facility will coordinate the access, Genomatix said in a statement.
GenomatixSuite also contains the largest available database of real mammalian promoter DNA sequences, the company said.
Genomatix said it hopes to eventually expand the agreement to all researchers at the Rockefeller University and Cornell Weill Medical College, academic institutions with which MSKCC is affiliated.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
