The organizers of the sbvIMPROVER project have released a set of comprehensive biological models for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for review by the global scientific community. These models were generated for the first phase of the group's Network Verification challenge.
These models, the organizers said, could be used to assess the mechanistic actions of new drug compounds and also to develop "robust hypotheses of gene expression changes and pathway activation/quiescence."
Knome has released a third version of KnoSYS, its genomic interpretation solution. This version of the software works independently of Knome’s hardware and includes new features such as an updated interface, new reference data sources, improved database server functionality, and other updates.
In addition to the new software release, Knome now offers pay-as-you-go pricing for its solution.
