Univ. of Florida Renews License for Ariadne’s Software for Genomics Studies

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Florida will use Ariadne’s software in its Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research, the company said today.
 
Under the agreement, which renews a site license for the company’s Pathway Studio, the university will continue to use the software in its medical and agricultural gene expression and proteomics studies.
 
ICBR Bioinformatics Core Director Li Liu said in a statement that UFL researchers “work on many non-model organisms and create microarrays for them” using technology from Roche’s 454 Life Sciences subsidiary and Agilent Technologies. "After mapping genes from these non-model organisms to model organisms, we use Pathway Studio to explore the gene networks,” Liu added.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
