InforSense Translational Research Solution, UniProt 13, Next Generation Biology Workbench (Swami), Exemplar LIMS v2, MetaCore, MetaLink, MapEditor, MetaRodent, Agilent Analytical Studio Reviewer

InforSense has launched the InforSense Translational Research Solution, which includes tools for integrating and analyzing clinical, patient specimen, and experimental data for translational research. The solution allows different user groups to integrate data and construct analysis workflows that can be deployed to colleagues. The system supports data from genome-wide association studies, gene expression experiments, proteomics studies, and image analysis, the company said.

UniProt 13 is available here. The release includes 5,751,608 UniProtKB entries, including 356,194 entries in the UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot section; 5,395,414 in the UniProtKB/TrEMBL section; 5,439,954 in the UniRef100 section; 3,596,087 in UniRef90; 1,818,919 in UniRef50; 16,134,006 in UniParc; and 6,028,191 in UniMES.

The San Diego Supercomputer Center has released version 1.0 of the Next Generation Biology Workbench. The system, code-named Swami, links molecular biology databases with analysis programs through a Web interface and runs on the computational resources at SDSC. It is available here.
Swami is based on the Biology Workbench that UCSD’s Shankar Subramaniam developed more than 10 years ago at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. SDSC said the Next Generation Biology Workbench includes most of the original Biology Workbench tools, with greater data handling flexibility. The system also includes the Sirius protein structure viewer, a structure and modeling tool that permits creation, display, and overlay of complex model structures.

Sapio Sciences has released Exemplar LIMS v2. New features include a workflow manager, which allows users to create complex workflows to track laboratory procedures and enforce data collection. The release also includes a new plug-in architecture to enable integration with existing applications and equipment, improved data-management capabilities, and other features.

GeneGo said this week that its MetaCore, MetaLink, MapEditor, and MetaRodent products are now compatible with the Mac and Linux operating systems and the Safari and Firefox web browsers.

Agilent Technologies has launched the Agilent Analytical Studio Reviewer, a browser for liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry that helps researchers quickly review large amounts of LC/MS data. Data display and reports can be generated in a variety of file formats, including Agilent's AASR and Waters' RPT. Single sample reports can be generated as PDFs.
