Clarification: Jul 15, 2002


A spokesman from Accelrys has notified BioInform that some information the company provided for last week’s newsbrief on the company’s new Discovery Studio product line contained inaccuracies. To clarify, an X Windows GUI is not being replaced, but rather serves as the basis for a new interface that will be consistent across the company’s software products. In addition, DS Gene will not be connected to the SeqStore database until December, and the company will “link” rather than “combine“ SeqStore with the Atlas Store database in the fourth quarter. Finally, the company’s upcoming proteomics software will be called DS Modeling, rather than DS Protein.
