SolveBio, Elsevier Ink Product Integration Pact

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – SolveBio and Elsevier are collaborating to integrate Pathway Studio, Elsevier's database of biological molecular interactions and curated pathways, with the SolveBio operation system for molecular information.

Under the terms of the agreement, all licensed SolveBio users will have free access to Pathway Studio's Pathway Viewer software, an application that enables researchers to quickly view a snapshot of the functional relationships among genes imported for SolveBio. In addition, researchers are able to find top-scoring, manually curated pathways that correlate most highly with these genes, Solve Bio said.

"We're excited about the integration with Pathway Studio from Elsevier, as it allows SolveBio users to tap into another advanced database of molecular data, instantly broadening the scope of their research," SolveBio CEO Mark Kaganovich said in a statement.

Jaqui Hodgkinson, vice president of product development for biology products, added that Elsevier aims to "ensure customers can quickly find relevant, accurate and trusted data, helping them make confident and informed precision medicine decisions," and that the company's collaboration with SolveBio "addresses this need by allowing researchers to find more relevant literature-based information."
