Rockville, MD (PRWEB) October 28, 2008
Ariadne today announced that University of Florida has renewed its site license for Pathway Studio, which they have used in medical and agricultural-related gene expression and proteomics studies. Pathway Studio streamlines hypothesis generation by creating visual interactive networks of biological relationships extracted from scientific literature and reference data sources.
The license is available to all scientists at the University of Florida via ICBR Bioinformatics Core. "We work on many of non-model organisms and create microarrays for them using 454 and Agilent technologies", said Li Liu, Bioinformatics Director at the ICBR Bioinformatics Core. "After mapping genes from these non-model organisms to model organisms, we use Pathway Studio to explore the gene networks".
"Supporting clients like University of Florida, working on mammalian, as well as other model and non-model organisms, is a key benefit that Pathway Studio brings to the scientific community", said John Clouston, Senior Director of Sales at Ariadne. "The ease, low cost, and high value offered by supporting custom, organism-focused databases were the key criteria in their decision to renew with us. There is a lot of research done on other organisms than human, mouse, or rat."
