Genedata License Phylosopher Software to BaSysbio

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Genedata will supply its Phylosopher data-management software to a European systems biology initiative that will study bacterial gene regulation and transcription.
Genedata said the Bacillus Systems Biology initiative will study the bacterium Bacillus subtilis, which the company said may be a mine of useful information for various industries.
The company said the bug has “significant economic potential as a producer of enzymes and metabolites” that may be used in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and agricultural industries. 
BaSysbio also will study two other bacteria, the anthrax-causing Anthracis and Staphylococcus aureus, which causes many secondary infections.
The project involves 15 companies, and will involve adapting high-throughput technologies such as transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and cell-reporter assays, the company said.
