WOBURN, Mass.--Compugen introduced GenWeb 4.5, an updated version of its web-based interface for the company's bioinformatics platform. GenWeb schedules DNA and protein database searches using BLAST, FASTA, or any Compugen search algorithm. Implemented on HTML/Java and run on Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, GenWeb provides links to National Center for Biotechnology Information's Entrez and any SRS server as well as proprietary databases. GenWeb requires the Compugen GenCore operating system on any Silicon Graphics, Digital Equipment, or Sun UNIX workstation, and provides secure data sharing over an intranet or the internet.
