Geneva Bioinformatics and Integromics this week announced that GeneBio's Phenyx software platform for mass spec data analysis has been integrated into Integromics' data analysis and management tool, OmicsHub Proteomics.

As a result, Phenyx and OmicsHub Proteomics users will be able to combine results from two different search engines and increase the accuracy of their protein identifications, the companies said in a joint statement.

OmicsHub was developed by ProteoRed, the Spanish National Proteomics Network, and serves as "an end-to-end proteomics data analysis and management system, from pprotein peak detection to generation of final reports," the companies said. Phenyx was developed in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics and is used for the identification, quantitation, and characterization of proteins and peptides from mass spec data.

Proxeon will preview ProteinCenter v. 3.0 at the Human Proteome Organization annual meeting starting this weekend in Toronto.

New functionalities to the software include the ability "to discover more about underlying biology by grouping proteins and peptides according to their quantitative profiles and finding differences in the hydrophobicity and isoelectric points of peptides across multiple datasets for method optimization," Proxeon said in a statement.

Suicidal Ideation-Linked Loci Identified Using Million Veteran Program Data

Researchers in PLOS Genetics identify risk variants within and across ancestry groups with a genome-wide association study involving veterans with or without a history of suicidal ideation.

Algorithm Teases Out Genetic Ancestry in Individuals at Biobank Scale

Researchers develop an algorithm known as Rye to tease apart ancestry fractions in admixed individuals at a biobank-scale, applying it to 488,221 UK Biobank participants in Nucleic Acids Research.

Multi-Ancestry Analysis Highlights Comparable Common Variants at Complex Trait-Linked Loci

Researchers in Nature Genetics examine common variants implicated in more than three dozen conditions, estimating genetic effect similarities across ancestry tracts in admixed individuals.
