Windber and Inforsense Extend Informatics Collaboration

NEW YORK, March 7 (GenomeWeb News) - The Windber Research Institute will extend its collaboration with Inforsense by licensing a customized integrative analytics platform to be used institute-wide.


Inforsense said that the collaboration has been renewed for three years. Financial details were not disclosed.


For Windber and Inforsense this deal expands a recent agreement. Last month, Windber and Erasmus University Medical Center said they planned to develop a translational medicine data-warehousing product for clinical, imaging, and proteomic and genomic data that will run on Oracle and InforSense technologies.


Windber is using several pieces of InforSense technology including its flagship informatics platform InforSense KDE; In-Oracle Environment for accessing Oracle data through the workflow interface; literature analysis add-on TextSense; and bioinformatics add-on InforSense BioSense.
