Swedish Academic Consortium Picks Spotfire Software for Microarray Data

NEW YORK, Jan. 13 - Sweden's functional genomics consortium Swegene Microarray Resource Center has secured a license with Spotfire software, the company said today.


With the license, which provides access to Spotfire's DecisionSite for Functional Genomics, the Swedish researchers can access and analyze microarray and other gene-expression data.


The Swegene consortium includes Goteborg University, Lund University, and the Chalmers University of Technology, is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. Its core microarray facility, launched in 2001, offers Affymetrix chips and software.
