Gencarta, Lion DiscoveryCenter, JSX Objects and Prospect Pro


Compugen has released a web-based subscription version of its Gencarta annotated genome, transcriptome, and proteome database. The product, originally released in March 2001, was previously only available via installations at users’ sites.

Lion Bioscience has launched the Lion DiscoveryCenter (LDC) integration platform, which combines features from the company’s SRS technology with NetGenics’ DiscoveryCenter integration technology, which Lion acquired earlier this year. LDC can handle large data sets from both flat file and relational sources. Lion plans to make LDC the central component of its modular IT offering, upon which the company will supply application components called Lion Engines. The Lion Target Engine and Lion Lead Engine are slated for release in 2003.

Hakman Peachey of San Francisco has launched JSX Objects, a bioinformatics platform that can be customized with collected data to create interactive data presentations called Bioschematics, which can be shared among researchers in an organization.

Waterloo, Ontario-based Bioinformatic Solutions has released Prospect Pro, a professional version of the company’s 3D protein structure prediction software. The new version includes improved algorithms to improve protein threading and accuracy and produce results up to 100 times faster than previous versions, according to the company.
