NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Thermo Fisher Scientific today announced a non-exclusive licensing deal for Protein Metrics' Byonic database search software.
The deal was announced in conjunction with Thermo Fisher's launch of its Thermo Scientific Proteome Discoverer software version 2.0 for qualitative and quantitative proteomics data. The Byonic software will be integrated into Proteome Discoverer. The agreement, Thermo Fisher said, adds "next-generation capability to streamline analysis of glycopeptides and other post-translational modification data."
Protein Metrics' Preview software, which samples MS/MS data to measure mass errors, digestion specificity, and modifications for full protein database search, will also be available now through Thermo Fisher.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
