Lion Launches Database Navigation System, SRS 6


HEIDELBERG, Germany--Lion Bioscience has launched SRS 6, the new version of its database query and navigation system for the life science community. SRS 6 provides access to a range of scientific databases, from biological sequences to metabolic pathways, single-nucleotide polymorphisms, and literature abstracts. SRS enables research organizations to analyze and use data across their discovery research efforts. SRS inventor Thure Etzold, managing director at Lion, said the most obvious improvement in SRS 6 is to the design of its user interface, although the most important enhancement is the complete redesign of its core components. The system is currently in use at 150 academic sites and 50-plus companies, including more than half of the leading pharmaceutical companies and several biotechnology and agroscience companies, he claimed. Academic licenses to the product are available free of charge.
