Lion Bioscience -- ArrayScout 2.0, PiScout, PiScout; Biobase -- Transfec; Inpharmatica -- Biopendium.


Lion Bioscience has released the latest version of its gene expression data analysis system, ArrayScout 2.0.

The current release provides new clustering and visualization tools and an open application programming interface that enables users to integrate ArrayScout 2.0 with their own analysis tools.

The system will also fully integrate with two other modules that the company is planning to introduce in the next few months, PiScout for molecular interactions and c for biological pathway analysis.

Biobase is now offering SNP gene regulation data through its Transfec transcription factor database.

The company identifies the SNP transcription factors by analyzing data obtained by the privately funded SNP Consortium.

“Up until now, no one has investigated the SNP raw data with regard to transcription factors,” said Holger Karas, Biobase CEO and co-founder.

Inpharmatica has released a new version of its Biopendium proteomic information resource and analysis system.

Biopendium converts sequence information derived from the Human Genome Project into information on protein structure and related function.

This latest version includes 27,000 human genes as well as whole genome annotation of the model organisms C. elegans and D. melanogaster. It contains over 850 million protein sequence/structure/ function relationships, which the company said is the most comprehensive proteomic resource available.
