Degussa-Led Systems Biology Consortium to Use Genedata Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Biotech informatics provider Genedata today said it has joined SysMAP, a joint industry and academic consortium led by chemicals maker Degussa that aims to increase the industrial production of amino acids.
 
Genedata said it will provide SysMAP, short for “systems-oriented analysis of the central metabolism of microbial amino acid producers,” with a computational framework for analyzing and structuring data.
 
Genedata said SysMAP researchers will use its Phylosopher pathway-centric information management system and its Expressionist software for analyzing molecular profiling data. The consortium will use the software to address problems in biotech production of chemicals for drugs, animal feed, and some foods, the company said.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not provided.
