GeneLinker Gold, Biomax Gene Expression Analysis Suite, Navigator, Partek Pro, ChemSymphony, DiscoveryCenter, FANTOM


  Molecular Mining of Raleigh, NC, has released version 1.1 of its GeneLinker Gold gene expression analysis software. New features include principle components analysis and self organizing maps.

GeneLinker Gold is licensed in perpetuity to the end user. Upgrades and tech support are free of charge for a full year. After that, users can purchase upgrades and support at a discount, MMC said.

Martinsried, Germany-based Biomax Informatics has launched its Biomax Gene Expression Analysis Suite for the analysis and visualization of gene expression data.

The system clusters genes based on their experimental expression profiles, displays expression information for selected clusters, and provides links to annotations for each gene using Biomax’s hierarchical functional catalog.

Transgenomic, headquartered in Omaha, Neb., has introduced new operating software for its Wave system for genetic mutation analysis. The software, called Navigator, offers distributed computing capabilities and new algorithms designed to detect genetic variations or mutations. Navigator automates Wave system control, data acquisition, and mutation analysis.

Transgenomic also launched a bioinformatics portal,, which will provide subscribers access to methods and validation data for detecting mutations in specific genes.

The Navigator software will be available as an upgrade to all existing Wave users in the fourth quarter of 2001 and will be available in December 2001.

Version 5.0 of the Partek Pro pattern recognition software is now available from St. Charles, Mo.-based Partek. New features include a redesigned user interface, enhanced statistical capabilities, and more support for database, web, and third-party application integration.

 NetGenics, based in Cleveland, Ohio, is making the ChemSymphony component of its DiscoveryCenter product freely available via’s ( Computational Chemistry Toolkit.

The Genome Exploration Research Group at RIKEN has released version 1.1 of the FANTOM database of functional annotations for RIKEN full-length cDNA clones. The clone set for FANTOM DB 1.1 contains 21,076 cDNA clones.
