Genedata and Insilico Will Combine Platforms in Systems Bio Alliance

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Genedata will combine its computational systems for genomics data management and analysis with Insilico's pathway-simulation tools as part of a systems-biology collaboration, the companies said today.
The alliance will focus on the fine chemical, food, feed, and personal care markets, the companies said. Target applications include the development of high-performance microbial production strains for industrial fermentation.
The companies also said that the collaboration will support research at German specialty chemistry firm Degussa and the Kluyver Center for Genomics and Industrial Fermentation.
Financial details were not disclosed.
