Genedata this week launched its Expressionist Migration Program. The program bundles the software firm's Expressionist system with a set of services for the migration of microarray, mass spectrometry, and related data from other systems.

According to Genedata, Expressionist integrates, stores, and analyzes transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics data, as well as a variety of phenotypic data. It consists of several modules supporting high-throughput, standardized and workflow-based data processing and statistical analysis.

BioTrove last week launched mouse pathways panels for use on its OpenArray Real-Time qPCR System.

According to BioTrove, genes associated with disease models have been collected into comprehensive qPCR assay panels. The panels contain a defined set of over 600 optimized, bench-validated assays for use in commonly-studied mouse gene families involved in animal models of disease states and biochemical pathways.

OpenArray mouse pathways panels are now available for research into cardiovascular disease, inflammation, and transcription factors. BioTrove said it is also developing additional mouse and human gene panels as well as rat gene panels.
