BRB ArrayTools, GeneExpress Cardiovascular DataSuite, Arrayex and Coded Electronic Life Library (CELL)

Premium

The Molecular Statistics and Bioinformatics Section of the National Cancer Institute has released its BRB ArrayTools integrated micro-array data analysis package for the analysis of cDNA and oligonucleotide array expression data.

BRB ArrayTools is freely available to government, academic, and non-profit users and can be licensed from the NIH for commercial purposes. It is available at http://linus. nci.nih.gov/BRB-ArrayTools.html.

Gene Logic of Gaithersburg, Md., has launched the GeneExpress Cardiovascular DataSuite for use in cardiovascular drug discovery and development programs.

The Cardiovascular DataSuite is a subset of the GeneExpress Suite and comprises a diverse set of normal and diseased human cardiac and vascular tissues from a broad cross-section of individuals, races, medication regimens, lifestyles, disease stages, and other demographic and/or clinical parameters.

Subscribers to the Cardiovascular DataSuite will have access to Gene Logic''s GeneExpress 2000 software platform.

Incellico, based in Durham, NC, is releasing two products: its Arrayex web-based software for gene expression analysis and the Coded Electronic Life Library (CELL), a data cross-referencing and integration toolkit.

Arrayex allows users to store, annotate, and analyze post-imaging gene expression data. It can be run through Incellico’s portal at www.incellico.com.

CELL offers a toolkit for searching and visualizing experimental data against public databases.
