GeneGo, Affymetrix, Agilent, Ingenuity, GE Healthcare


GeneGo has launched the newest version of its MetaCore integrated data mining suite, featuring more than 300 functional maps of human biology, additional parsers for importing data directly from Affymetrix and Agilent microarrays, analyzed data from Silicon Genetics’ GeneSpring and Rosetta’s Resolver, SAGE, proteomics, and metabolomics data.

Ingenuity has released the latest version of its flagship product, Ingenuity Pathways Analysis. The software enables researchers to analyze multiple datasets across different experimentation platforms while identifying key functions and pathways that distinguish biological states. The product is used for dose-response assessment, patient stratification for clinical trials, time course experiments, and simultaneous analysis of gene lists and protein lists.

GE Healthcare, based in Chalfont St. Giles, UK, announced this week that it has launched its Rat Whole Genome Bioarray for use on the firm’s CodeLink microarray platform. The array has roughly 34,000 gene targets, and according to the firm, detects transcripts at levels lower than any other commercially available platform.
