TGen Licenses Active Motif’s Data-Mining Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Active Motif, a research tools and bioinformatics company, today said that Translational Genomics has licensed its data-mining software.
 
TGen will use the AKS2 software in genomic-profiling projects such as high-throughput siRNA screening, Active Motif said.
 
Jeff Kiefer, head of TGen’s Knowledge Mining Lab, said the software will be used in the company’s pharmacogenomic programs to help “integrate prior knowledge” from research literature.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
