Penn State to Install GenoLogics' Geneus and Proteus Software at Several Labs

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Researchers at Penn State will use GenoLogics’ Geneus and Proteus lab and data-management informatics software at multiple labs, the company said today.
                 
GenoLogics said Penn State College of Medicine and the school’s Hershey Medical Center will install the software in core labs. It will also be used at the Penn State Cancer Institute, which is trying to become a designated Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute.
 
Researchers at the Hershey Medical Center will use the software to manage sample data and workflows for research in functional genomics, molecular genetics, macromolecular, proteomics/mass spectrometry, cell science/flow cytometry, transgenic, microscopy imaging, MRI/NMR, and viral vector cores, GenoLogics said.
