MAG's GeneMine 3.5 To Speed Gene Discovery


PALO ALTO, Calif.--Molecular Applications Group announced the introduction of GeneMine 3.5, an upgrade of its software tool used to predict gene function.

"By reducing the time necessary to analyze gene function from weeks to hours, it relieves a major bottleneck in pharmaceutical research," said Thomas Hatton, director of product planning. "This latest version adds broader platform support and a number of features that will make analysis still faster and more convenient."

The company said the added features include: compatibility with Sun/Solaris 2.5.1 and Intel/Red Hat Linux 5.1+ platforms; automatic retrieval of top sequence homologs after a comprehensive sequence analysis run; comprehensive sequence analysis from the command line; the ability to bypass the program data cache when performing analyses, to ensure that time-sensitive annotation information is as current as possible; a tool for viewing the original, unprocessed output from servers, including raw data and informational messages in the program's information window; the ability to generate reverse complements of nucleotide sequences to allow loading and aligning of related nucleotide and protein sequences; and flexible license check-out procedures that allow users of Look and GeneMine on the same site to sign out licenses on an as-needed basis.
