ProteoMetrics of New York has released new high-throughput software for protein identification, called Radars Knexus. The product is a simplified interface for analyzing and storing results from medium-scale proteomics experiments.
Radars Knexus combines the company’s ProFound search engine with its Radars proteomic data analysis system to simplify the process of analyzing batches of mass spectral data, said ProteoMetrics. Protein sequence databases are searched with the Radars algorithms using information from mass spectral peptide maps generated by mass spectrometers.
The integration of these programs enables automated data retrieval and comparative analysis.
Base4 of Toronto has released Alerts! 2.0 and has begun development of its Timesheet module. Alerts provides a link for scientists to capture and share findings, automate search and review processes, and notify teams about new developments. The product also has an email component that enables access to the PharMatrix central repository without having to be logged on. PharMatrix is the company’s core bioinformatics product. In addition, the Alerts External Services component allows Internet tools and external processes, such as scientific search engines, to be used.
