Prolinx has released new versions of its Versalinx chemical affinity technology for isolating proteins from complex samples. Specifically, the company said its Versalinx product now allows researchers to customize the purification of molecules by building affinity columns under mild conditions suitable for preserving biological activity. In addition, the Versalinx product includes pre-conjugated ligands that reduce the time required for optimizing affinity isolation experiments.
Biomax Informatics has made its manually-annotated human genome database, the Biomax Human Genome Database, available for license, the Martinsried, Germany-based company said last week. The database contains both automatic annotation and extensive manual annotation by Biomax scientists. The genes were identified with the FGENESH++ gene modeling software, licensed from Softberry, and automatic annotation to identify putative protein structure and function, was performed using Biomax''s Pedant-Pro sequence analysis software suite.
