Structural Bioinformatics Takes MAG’s GeneMine



AN DIEGO--Structural Bioinformatics has purchased GeneMine from the now-defunct Palo Alto, Calif., bioinformatics company, Molecular Applications Group. Structural Bioinformatics said it would integrate the technology with its protein database interface, GeneWeb. GeneMine will enhance the GeneWeb interface and enable users to collect and display an extensive array of information including homology clusters, homology fingerprints, active sites, functional motifs, post-translational modifications, and metabolic pathway associations, the company said.
