Germany’s HepatoSys Liver Research Network Licenses Genedata Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Genedata has entered into a collaboration with HepatoSys, a consortium of German research centers studying the physiology and pathophysiology of the human liver using systems biology, the company said today.
 
Genedata said that the consortium has licensed its Phylosopher and Expressionist software packages. The company has partnered with the HepatoSys researchers to use the software as the basis for a computational system to analyze molecular processes in mammalian liver cells.
 
The HepatoSys consortium is investigating signaling pathways, gene regulation mechanisms, cell signaling dynamics, and metabolic activity in hepatocytes. It plans to cellular simulation with experimental data analysis to understand the biochemical functions of the liver.
 
Genedata is also developing a customized data-management platform based on its software for the HepatoSys network that will represent dynamic pathway models.
