SRI International has updated its BioCyc database collection to include a mobile application for remote access, as well as additional repositories that support researchers studying genomes and metabolic pathways.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – SRI International on Monday said that the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute awarded it a $4.5 million contract to establish a center aimed at improving metabolomics research.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies and SRI International today announced a licensing agreement to offer a series of Agilent's products with SRI's complete BioCyc Pathway Database Collection.
SRI will use the funds to add energy-related metabolic pathways and enzymes to its MetaCyc database. The updated content, combined with its Pathway Tool software, will help scientists reconstruct metabolic pathways and develop new methods of producing fuel and other products from biomass and microorganisms.
The money is part of the $22 million committed by the state in return for the nonprofit research and technology development institute locating its recently-opened Center for Advanced Drug Research, or CADRE, in Harrisonburg, Va.
