Prometheus Research Signs 3-Year Contract With Simons Foundation to Expand HTSQL Informatics System for Autism Research

SFARI Base to Usher in 'New Paradigm of Research Collaboration'

NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometheus Research has signed a three year contract with the New York-based Simons Foundation to expand their development partnership on SFARI Base, the HTSQL-based informatics platform that helps researchers collaborate on understanding the causes of autism. The collaboration is part of the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI).

Prometheus, a database management software company headquartered here, created the groundbreaking HTSQL platform, which allows for real-time access and configuration of databases via the web. Their flagship product for the biomedical research market, RexDB(R), formed the basis for SFARI Base, and is already used by over a dozen leading research universities, such as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and the University of California - Los Angeles.

"Prometheus Research and its HTSQL web-based database software are enabling researchers to usher in a new paradigm of research collaboration with SFARI Base," said Stephen B. Johnson PhD, Associate Professor, Biomedical Informatics, Columbia University, working with the Simons Foundation. "This web-based tool offers researchers unprecedented access to DNA specimens on affected families, combined with high quality phenotype data," Johnson said.

The SFARI mission is to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of autism and related developmental disorders. The SFARI database, known as SFARI Base, is a new resource for autism research that provides the scientific community access to genetic and phenotypic information on 2000 families.

"Researchers need flexible, adaptive, and secure informatics systems that empower them to uncover critical data easily, from wherever they are, over the web," said Leon Rozenblit, president, Prometheus Research. "HTSQL enables us to quickly and efficiently develop customized solutions that increase organizational intelligence, save time, and save money by making data a shared resource that collaborators can access as needed."
