Syngenta Licenses Additional Genedata Module

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Syngenta has licensed Genedata's Expressionist Refiner MS module for use in its metabolomic data processing programs, Genedata said today.

Agriculture biotech firm Syngenta will use the Refiner along with the Expressionist system, which it originally licensed in 2005, to process and analyze liquid and gas chromatrography mass spectrometry data.

Syngenta UK's Head of Metabolomics, David Portwood, said in a statement that the new module will help the company "capture very large data sets directly from a wide range of instruments" and to "visualize and manipulate data from a wide variety of mass spectrometry experiment types."

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
