Phoretix Array Database, ProteomeX, Rockefeller University s Modeller


Nonlinear Dynamics of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, has released version 2.0 of its Phoretix Array Database.

The database complements the company’s recently upgraded Phoretix Array v3.0 microarray analysis software and contains a new data mining wizard with improved statistical capabilities, including principal component analysis, multidimensional scaling, and correspondence analysis.


Thermo Finnigan, a Thermo Electron business based in San Jose, Calif., has integrated its TurboSequest protein identification software with its LCQ Deca XP ion mass spectrometer and Surveyor HPLC to create the ProteomeX multidimensional capillary LC/MS system.

The ProteomeX Workstation also includes Thermo’s BioWorks post-acquisition protein-analysis software.


Version 6.0 of Rockefeller University’s Modeller comparative protein structure modeling software is now available at http://guitar.rockefeller. edu/modeller.

Changes since Modeller 4 (version 5.0 was not publicly available) include a change of code from Fortran 77 to Fortran 90, dynamic memory allocation to remove limits on the size of most arrays, a number of bug fixes, and a redesigned website.
