IBM Research Adds to Life Science Repertoire with Genomic Annotation Language | GenomeWeb

Computational biology at IBM Research is gathering steam. In addition to last week’s sale of a BlueGene/L system to Japan’s AIST for protein-folding simulation, IBM researchers have published a paper outlining a new genome annotation language.

The Genomic Messaging System Language, or GMSL, embeds information related to stretches of the genome within the A/C/G/T string of the DNA itself. The approach is described in a report in the Oct. 11 print edition of the Journal of Proteome Research, and was published online July 22.
