gX-PathVision, Pipeline Pilot.


GeneticXchange, based in Menlo Park, Calif., has launched gX-PathVision version 1.0, a software tool for visualizing and annotating biological pathways.

Features include the ability to create, edit, and visualize biological pathway diagrams; utilize existing diagrams and images in the creation of new pathways; share pathway visualizations with scientific collaborators; and frame and execute queries using GeneticXchange’s data integration engine.

Version 1.5 of San Diego-based SciTegic’s Pipeline Pilot informatics software is now available.

Pipeline Pilot allows disparate data sets to be merged, analyzed, or manipulated. The new release provides support for third-party tools like Oracle, ISIS/Hose, ISIS/Base, RS3, and Spotfire DecisionSite. New components have also been added to aid the integration and aggregation of data and infrastructure changes have been made for improved reliability and error reporting.
