NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - GVK Biosciences of Hyderabad, India, has licensed its Medicinal Chemistry Database to the software and data-services company GeneGo, the companies said today.
GeneGo plans to integrate the MedChem database into its Metacore and MetaDrug platforms.
GeneGo's vice president of business development, Julie Bryant, said the agreement marks the first time the company has licensed third-party content for use in its platforms.
