Ariadne Wins $100K NIH Grant to Extend MedScan Beyond Pathway Analysis

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Ariadne said today it has received a $100,000 small business innovation research grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue developing its data-extraction technology.
 
The Rockville, Md.-based company said its MedScan technology uses a linguistics approach to extract functional protein, cellular, and molecular relationships from MEDLINE abstracts and articles, and can identify regulatory mechanisms that are involved in the information.
 
Ariadne said it will use the grant to develop MedScan for uses beyond pathway analysis, such as studying toxicology small-molecule enzyme reactions and human metabolism.
 
The company makes the MedScan available as part of its Pathway Studio software, which includes a database of 1.25 million functional relationships.
