NIH Renews Biobase License

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health has renewed a licensing agreement for Biobase's microarray and proteomics software packages and databases, the company said today.

The agreement renewal, which is for the second year of a five-year license agreement, gives all 27 NIH institutions locally installed access to the Biobase Knowledge Library, which includes the Transfac and Proteome databases.

The company also said NIH researchers will have access to the ExPlain Analysis System, which is used to analyze and interpret large-scale data sets from DNA microarrays, as well as ChIP-on-chip and Chip-Seq experiments.

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
