NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health has expanded its license agreement for a biomedical information system from Bioalma, the Spanish company said Monday.
The company said NIH's Center for Information Technology has increased its license for the AlmaKnowledgeServer 2 (AKS2) software by 25 percent.
The CIT will use the expansion of its AKS2 system, which is used to search, analyze, and visualize biomedical information, to support the Human Salivary Proteome Project's annotation requirements. The project is an effort to develop saliva-based diagnostic tests.
Madrid-based Bioalma is a spin-off from the National Center of Biotechnology, and is part of the Bionostra group.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
