Spotfire, Proteome, TissueInformatics


Spotfire and protein database provider Proteome have finished integrating Proteome’s Yeast Proteome Database with the services portal.

Users can combine and explore Proteome's functional annotations and protein properties along with other internal and external data, such as DNA microarray and functional genomics datasets.

YPD is a volume in Proteome's BioKnowledge Library, a collection of searchable databases that contain information about characterized genes and proteins of specific organisms, including protein properties and functions. The library has information on over 56,000 proteins, with annotations and references.

TissueInformatics of Pittsburgh has released its Tissue Information Solution, a software system for capturing and analyzing data found in human, animal, and plant tissues. The product is directed at helping research at pharma and biotechs access quantitative tissue data.

The product uses the company’s Quantfx platform, which creates quantitative descriptions of tissue structure and function that are linked with tissue images and stored so that they can later be correlated with genomic or other biological information in an integrated bioinformatics solution.

Quantfx has been applied to more than a dozen different types of tissues in early testing.
