NIH Library to Use Computable Genomix Online Research Tool

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health Library will use Computable Genomix's GeneIndexer online genomics research tool, the company said today.

The NIH Library purchased a subscription to GeneIndexer as part of its effort to become an "information commons" for discovery, research assistance, and learning.

GeneIndexer simplifies the discovery process for researchers using high-throughput genomic data by searching more than 1 million gene-related abstracts available through the National Library of Medicine, Computable Genomix said.

The NIH Library is an opens stacks biomedical research library whose collection and services support the NIH and selected US Department of Health and Human Services agencies.

"Adding GeneIndexer to its collection of bioinformatics tools makes perfect sense," Brad Silver, CEO of Memphis, Tenn.-based Computable Genomix, said in a statement. "The library, like the research it tracks, is evolving."
