NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore will use GeneGo's pathway analysis and knowledge mining software under a new license agreement, GeneGo said today.

The most recent MetaCore 6.0 suite includes interactome analysis tools and links to Sigma-Aldrich for users seeking to buy compounds.
