NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Genedata today said it has expanded a three-year agreement with HepatoSys under which it developed software for data storage and analysis for the group.
HepatoSys is a network of more than 40 German research entities funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research. The consortium is focused on hepatic cell model systems and on the development of related tools and methodologies.
It studies the physiology and pathophysiology of liver cells and intends to use Genedata’s software and services in its pursuit of biomarkers that can be turned into diagnostics for liver-related diseases.
Genedata said the platform resulting from the initial agreement, which handles data from high-throughput transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics research, has already been deployed and is functioning.
Under the expanded agreement, Genedata will conduct projects to analyze and interpret the molecular profiling data the HepatoSys consortium generates.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
