NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Today, Advaita Bioinformatics announced a partnership with BioTime subsidiary LifeMap Sciences to promote and sell iPathwayGuide, Advaita's flagship genomic data analysis product.
Under the terms of the agreement, iPathwayGuide will be featured across several LifeMap products, including GeneCards, which is a reference database of human genes. Advaita's iPathway is a web-based application for analyzing information from next-generation sequencing and gene expression experiments and identifying the genetic pathways that are affected in disease. Customers of the solution are allowed to upload and analyze their data and view the results for free for 72 hours. They can then purchase a single report or pay a fee for unlimited access to the results.
The arrangement with LifeMap will "expose the usefulness and advance capabilities of iPathwayGuide to hundreds of thousands of LifeMaps’ users," Sorin Draghici, Advaita's president and CEO, said in a statement. "We have already seen incredible interest [in] our software and this collaboration will continue to bring awareness of its advantages, as well as benefit the current LifeMap users."
