Application of Genomatix in silico methods reveals novel cancer associated genes

Genomatix Software GmbH, an in silico systems biology company with headquarter in Munich (Germany), released today that researcher in Dublin, Ireland and Boston, U.S.A. identified novel cancer associated genes, based on strategies and products developed and promoted by Genomatix. Experimental verif...

New e-science service could accelerate cancer research

... at The University of Manchester provides access to over 3,500 Web Services that can be composed by scientists for constructing and enacting their in silico experiments. But one of the main issues that hinders the wide adoption and use of Web Services is the difficulty in locating those that perform th...

...he glycome reaction network that controls the final glycan structure that appears on cells," Neelamegham explained. "This approach then provides an in silico tool that can be applied to perturb the system of interest, such as the glycosylation network." Those studies, in turn, he continued, can then gener...

New lab manual focuses on essential methods for purifying and characterizing proteins
