NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Genencor yesterday said it has licensed Integrated Genomics’ bioinformatics software.
IG said Genencor, a biotech segment of Danisco A/S that develops enzymes and other bioproducts, will use IG’s ERGO software to “characterize and optimize microbial products used in reducing the environmental impact of the cleaning, textiles and oil industries.”
The ERGO integrates data from genomics, biochemistry, gene-expression studies, genetics, and literature, IG said. It is used to analyze sequences and annotate genes, and to perform metabolic reconstructions, among other functions.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
