Date:3/26/2008

ST. JOSEPH, Mich., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneGo, Inc., the leading systems biology tools company, announced today the release of MetaMiner Cystic Fibrosis, a first of its kind software and database platform designed to help advance drug discovery for cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease. This novel, disease-specific tool will provide the cystic fibrosis research community with state-of-the art methods for integrating and analyzing cystic fibrosis data.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics, Inc., a non-profit affiliate of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, provided funding and guidance to the project with the goal of leveraging systems biology technology and accumulating data in order to accelerate drug discovery for this disease. Cystic fibrosis affects 30,000 people in the United States, and ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of a CF gene.

"MetaMiner Cystic Fibrosis is an important new tool for the cystic fibrosis research community," said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "It will allow the integration of important new results with existing literature and speed up the rate of insights that can lead to new therapeutic interventions."

"We are very pleased to announce the completion of the initial phase of the project," said Julie Bryant, GeneGo's VP of Business Development. "We enjoyed working with the Foundation and the team of world-class experts they assembled for this project. In phase one, we built a database of all relevant small experiments information on the disease as well as over 30 cystic fibrosis specific pathway maps and networks. We believe this environment will help find a cure for cystic fibrosis faster as we move in to the next phase of the collaboration".

MetaMiner Cystic Fibrosis includes off-the-shelf GeneGo products -- MetaCore, MetaDrug and MapEditor -- as well as cystic fibrosis experiments content annotated by GeneGo in the form of dise
