GeneGo, Agilent Integrate Informatics Tools

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GeneGo today said that Agilent's GeneSpring bioinformatics solution has been integrated with GeneGo's MetaCore.

The collaboration was announced in connection with the newest version of Agilent's GeneSpring. Agilent said today introduced GeneSpring GX 11.5, which can interpret microarray, proteomics, and metabolomics experiments together for the first time. The newest version includes a direct connection to the MetaCore pathway analysis engine, enabling users to seamlessly upload expression data analyzed in GeneSpring, said GeneGo.

"MetaCore can concurrently visualize multiple types of data and will be able to take advantage of this new functionality in GeneSpring which will be very helpful to our joint customers," Julie Bryant, VP of business development for St. Joseph, Mich.-based GeneGo, said in a statement.
