New Products: Partek's Pathway Software

Premium

Software vendor Partek this week released Pathway. The tool allows users to study gene-gene and gene-protein relationships with the ability to identify and display significantly affected pathways, search for specific pathways and genes, and color-code them based on their p-values and fold changes.

Additionally, the tool has an interactive pathway browser and links to other online databases. According to Partek, its Pathway tool supports raw data from "all major commercial next-generation sequencing and microarray platforms."
