Teranode Partners with Affy, The MathWorks, and KEGG to Extend Software Platform

NEW YORK, Nov. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - Seattle-based software firm Teranode is partnering with Affymetrix, The MathWorks, and the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathway database to extend the capabilities of its Teranode Design Suite modeling platform, the firm said today.

 

The development partnerships will allow reserchers to translate information from KEGG, data generated by the Affymetrix platform, and models created with The MathWorks' Matlab technical computing software into VLX (Visual Language of Experimentation), an XML implementation that describes experimental protocols and biological models in the Teranode Design Suite.  

 

The VLX format supports simulated and experimental data, annotations, workflow automation, and audit trails, Teranode said.

 

The company said it is using the Affymetrix Development Kit to ensure that its software is integrated with Affy's platform.

 

In addition, Teranode said it has acquired a KEGG developer license from Pathways Solutions, the Tokyo-based licensor of KEGG data, to support data and model repository development with VLX.

 

Finally, the partnership with The MathWorks will enable researchers to translate between Matlab programs and VLX, Teranode said.
