Genomic Solutions, a UK-based microarray provider, launched its new Plate Arraying technology on the BioRobotics MicroGrid II and GeneMachines OmniGrid Accent last week. The new technology can produce DNA and protein microarrays in 96 and 384-well microplates and can printover 1,000 features within an individual well in a 96-well microplate.
Rosetta Biosoftware has integrated Affymetrix GeneChip Operating Software with version 5.0 of the Rosetta Resolver gene expression data analysis system, the life sciences firm said.
Rosetta said that the integration between the two systems should make high-throughput gene expression laboratories more productive, and allow advanced data mining.
The National Cancer Institute’s Center for Bioinformatics has released caArray database version 1.0, a data-management system designed for data produced by NCI-supported programs, the institute said.
The new database is a supplemental tool for use by NCI’s caBIG, the network of cancer researchers.
Ariadne Genomics has released Seqware Data Center, a searchable sequence data management tool, the systems biology company said.
Seqware Data Center updates GenBank from the National Center for Biotechnology Information data repository, and can automatically update and reuse Blast results.
