GeneX-Lite, EON 1.0, WABE 1.3, EMBOSS, MEV, GeneChip Operating Software


The National Center for Genome Resources has launched a new version of the GeneX-Lite gene expression database client with an improved user interface and enhanced annotation capabilities at

OpenEye Scientific Software has released EON 1.0, an electrostatics comparison program that screens databases of molecules for similarity to a lead compound. The company has also released WABE 1.3, a lead optimization program that generates isoteric analogs to a lead molecule with the same shape but more desirable electrostatics.

Researchers at the Belgian and Argentinian EMBnet nodes have posted a beta release of EMBOSS wrappers for Clustal, Blast, Fasta, and other programs at

The TM4 software group at the Institute for Genomic Research has released MEV (multiple experiment viewer) 3.0 at New features include a scripting option for running multiple algorithms successively, and improved cluster table viewers. Four new analysis modules have also been added: Expression Analysis Systematic Explorer; two-factor ANOVA; K-nearest neighbors classifier; and Gene Distance Matrix.

Affymetrix has released version 1.2 of its GeneChip Operating Software (GCOS). GCOS 1.2 offers new data sharing tools; 50-60 percent faster creation of CEL files; compatibility with higher-density arrays; and 21 CFR 11 compliance.
