NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The South Korean Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology has licensed Integrated Genomics’ ERGO software, the company said Thursday.
Daejeon-based KRIBB, which is funded by the South Korean government, will use the tools for metabolic reconstruction, enzyme-data mining, and comparative genomics studies, Chicago-based IG said.
The ERGO software “combines pattern-based analyses with a repertoire of comparative genomics tools for gene visualization,” and is optimized for analyzing microorganisms and for integrating data from genomic studies, biochemistry, gene expression, genetics, and literature.
The platform contains more than 1,236 genomes at various stages of completion, and a collection of networked cellular pathways.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
