Washington State University Extends License to GeneGo's MetaCore

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Washington State University Tri-cities has extended its license to GeneGo’s MetaCore pathway analysis platform, the company said today.
 
John Miller, associate professor at Washington State University Tri-Cities and emeritus staff member at Pacific Northwest National Labs, said in a statement that his research group has been using MetaCore under the Department of Energy's Low Dose Radiation Research Program.
 
He said that his team has been using the system to interpret proteomic data from irradiated cells and to identify pathways responsible for cytokine release following radiation exposure
 
Financial terms and other details of the agreement were not provided.
