Gene Logic's Deal with Affymetrix Aims to Add Value to Expression Data


GAITHERSBURG, Md.--With access to Gene Logic's database of 50,000 proprietary gene sequences, Affymetrix will design and manufacture a series of custom microarrays. The companies said the custom arrays will complement Affymetrix's current 60,000 human gene set and will accelerate the pace at which Gene Logic achieves full genome coverage for the samples used in the GeneExpress database.

Meanwhile, Gene Logic released the next generation of its GeneExpress database. GeneExpress 2000 is a reference set of gene expression information across a range of normal and diseased human tissues, experimental animals, and disease models and cell lines. The new version replaces the first generation of software that was released to support the database in November 1999, and will be deployed to all current commercial users of the database.
