Genomatix Software, CLC Bio

Premium
Genomatix Software and its US branch Genomatix Software, Inc., in Ann Arbor, Mich., have released its literature- and pathway-mining program LitInspector.
 
The software, which can be accessed free of charge by the scientific community worldwide, is based on published abstracts and related meta-information, like MeSH, from the entire PubMed of the National Library of Medicine, according to the company.
 
With more than 260,000 gene synonyms, LitInspector uses one of the largest gene synonym tables available, thus securing a substantial amount of relevant information for scientists not knowing all synonyms of their gene of interest.
 
Additional free text input will result in more finely-tuned literature searches.

CLC Bio has released its CLC Bioinformatics Database, which has been designed to enable researchers at universities, clinical labs, and pharmaceutical firms optimize the number of drug candidates they can study. which has been designed to enable researchers at universities, clinical labs, and pharmaceutical firms optimize the number of drug candidates they can study.
 
For organizations already having an existing relational database in use for sharing DNA, RNA, and protein sequence data, the CLC Bioinformatics Database interface can be customized to store and retrieve data directly from that database.
 
The design, API-customization, implementation, and data migration can be carried out by the customer or by CLC bio's consultants.
 
The CLC Bioinformatics Database is cross-platform, running on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Additionally, it will enable users across various workgroups to work on data in a central, shared, and secure relational database.
 
CLC Bioinformatics Database integrates withseveral types of databases, including Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL.
