Spotfire, Proteome Complete Protein Data Integration

NEW YORK, Dec 12 – Spotfire and Proteome said Tuesday that they have finished integrating Proteome’s Yeast Proteome Database with the Spotfire.net portal.

Under the terms of the collaboration, customers of both Spotfire and Proteome can now access and analyze data from the YPD, a specific volume of Proteome's BioKnowledge Library, using the web-based analytics service.

The companies did not say how many customers they share.

As a result of the collaboration, users can get curated gene and protein information from Proteome's Yeast Proteome Database via the web. Likewise, visitors to Spotfire.net can search Proteome's functional annotations and protein properties along with other internal and external data, such as DNA microarray and functional genomics datasets.

Christopher Ahlberg, CEO of Spotfire, said in a statement that by joining forces, the companies could help scientists to shorten the discovery process.

The Yeast Proteome Database is part of Proteome's BioKnowledge Library, a collection of searchable databases that contain information about characterized genes and proteins of specific organisms, including protein properties and functions. The library has information on over 56,000 proteins, with annotations and references.

The companies did not say whether additional information from Proteome’s library would eventually be available through Spotfire.net.
