Agilent Technologies has released GeneSpring GX 9.0. The new version of the visualization and analysis system for gene expression data is built on the Avadis platform developed by Strand Life Sciences and includes new “guided workflow” features for several commercial microarray platforms, the company said.
 
GeneSpring GX 9.0 includes guided workflows for Agilent SurePrint microarrays, Affymetrix GeneChips, and Illumina Beadchips, with additional applications planned. The workflows guide researchers through the analysis steps required for each platform, the company said.
 

The new version of GeneSpring can also be used to highlight enriched pathways or gene ontology categories. The software supports the BioPAX pathways/network exchange format and lets users import networks and pathways from sources such as KEGG, the Cancer Cell Map, and BioCyc.
