GenomeQuest, Servier Develops System That Links Array Data to qPCR Tools

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — GenomeQuest and French pharmaceutical company Servier have developed a system that links data from high-throughput microarray experiments to qPCR platforms from different manufacturers, the companies said today.
Under the collaboration, the companies developed a system for gene studies that provides a way to view and analyze transcripts and biological assays that may come from a gene, GenomeQuest said.
GenomeQuest, which makes a web-based sequence database, said it will hold the commercial rights to the system. Servier will receive gene catalogs for human, mouse, and rat, and a visualization module that integrates Servier’s IP with other reagent libraries, the company said.
