GeneGo Integrates With Cytoscape
Date:12/18/2007

ST. JOSEPH, Mich., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneGo, Inc., the leading provider of databases, software and services in systems biology, announced today that its platforms for functional data analysis, MetaCore and MetaDrug, are now integrated with Cytoscape. MetaCore users will now be able to use Cytoscape network visualization tools and have access to dozens of its open source and commercial plug-ins. The integrated solution was presented at the Cytsocape annual meeting in Amsterdam, November 6-9.

Originally developed at the Institute for Systems Biology, Cytoscape is a bioinformatics software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and integrating these interactions with gene expression profiles and other state data. Additional features are available as plugins. Plugins are available for network and molecular profiling analyses, new layouts, additional file format support and connection with databases. Plugins may be developed using the Cytoscape open Java software architecture by anyone and plugin community development is encouraged.

"This was an obvious progression from our relationship with the Institute of Systems Biology," said Julie Bryant, Vice President of Business Development for GeneGo. "The Cytoscape project has grown into, probably, the most advanced and well known developer's community in systems biology, and we are very glad to participate in it. We know that our tools and content will be of interest for Cytoscape users."

About GeneGo

GeneGo develops systems biology technology for life science research. The original computational MetaDiscovery(TM) platform allows an integration and expert analysis of different kinds of experimental data (mRNA expression, proteomics, metabolomics, microRNA assays and other phenotypic data) and relevant bioactive chemistry (metabolites, drugs, other xenobiotics) within the framework of curated biological pathways and networks. GeneGo's flagship product, MetaCore 4.5(TM), assists pharmaceutical scientists in the areas of target selection and validation, identification of biomarkers for disease states and toxicology. The second product, MetaDrug 4.5(TM) is designed for prediction of human metabolism, toxicity and biological effects for novel small molecules compounds. MetaBase(TM) represents the knowledge base for MetaCore. For more information, please visit the company's web site at http://www.genego.com

MetaCore(TM), MetaBase(TM), MetaDrug(TM), MetaLink(TM), MetaDiscovery(TM), MetaTox(TM) and MetaMiner(TM), 1-2-3 Workflow(TM) are trademarks of GeneGo, Inc.

About the Institute for Systems Biology

The Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) is an internationally renowned, non-profit research institute dedicated to the study and application of systems biology. ISB seeks to unravel the mysteries of human biology and identify strategies for predicting and preventing diseases such as cancer, diabetes and AIDS. The driving force behind the innovative "systems" approach is the integration of biology, computation and technology. This approach allows scientists to analyze all of the elements in a system rather than one gene or protein at a time. Located in Seattle, Washington, the Institute has grown to 13 faculty and more than 200 staff members; an annual budget of more than $26 million; and an extensive network of academic and industrial partners.
