Stratagene to Distribute Iobion s New Software

NEW YORK, April 22 - Stratagene has agreed to exclusively distribute and co-market four of Iobion Informatics' desktop informatics packages, the sister companies said today.


These packages include Iobion's GeneSolve, ProteinSolve, PathwayAssist, and ArrayAssist, which will be sold individually, as well as in a suite named IobionLab.


PathwayAssist package uses a Natural Language Processor to use the literature to build biological association networks. GeneSolve and ProteinSolve include capabilities for importing, visualizing, and interpreting DNA and protein sequence information. ArrayAssist is designed for importation and analysis of Affymetrix microarray data.


The companies did not disclose the financial terms of the agreement. Iobion and Strategene, both of La Jolla, Calif., are both privately owned by the same group of investors.
