"Sigma-Aldrich is establishing itself as a destination for the life science community to understand biology and access the resources it needs to continue groundbreaking research," said Dr. David Smoller, President of Sigma-Aldrich's Research Biotech business unit. "We intend Your Favorite Gene powered by Ingenuity to serve as an information hub for researchers and students exploring diseases, functions, and gene pathways, and to match our comprehensive collection of products, kits and reagents to relevant biological information."
Ingenuity's library is comprised of information extracted from a range of leading and specialized scientific journals by a team of Ph.D.-level life scientists. Ingenuity's networks of biological and chemical relationships are manually curated, providing researchers with the most up-to-date findings related to proteins, genes, complexes, drugs, tissues, cells, and diseases of interest. Your Favorite Gene powered by Ingenuity will present select information from Ingenuity's library, with quick links to the larger repository for Ingenuity subscribers.
"Today's increasing emphasis on a systems view of biology is requiring scientists to design their experiments based on a more complete and dynamic understanding of biology," said Jake Leschly, CEO of Ingenuity. "Through Your Favorite Gene powered by Ingenuity, researchers are now able to leverage the breadth of Ingenuity's knowledge and technology to gain scientific insight and to immediately translate this into more effective experimental designs and a better selection of Sigma-Aldrich products."
Your Favorite Gene powered by Ingenuity provides streamlined access to Sigma-Aldrich's extensive portfolio of validated shRNAs, siRNAs, Prestige Antibodies and bioactive small molecule products. The Web portal is free for all researchers and students, and can be accessed at <
