Genedata signs license agreement

10 September 2008



Genedata has signed a license agreement with BASF Plant Science. BASF Plant Science has licensed Genedata Expressionist across all of its research centres in Europe and North America.

BASF Plant Science is focused on developing plants for increased agricultural efficiency, healthier nutrition and as renewable raw materials. Projects include plants with higher yield, plants with a higher content of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids for improved cardiovascular health and potatoes with an optimised starch composition for use in the paper, textile and construction industries.

Since researchers from BASF Plant Science analyse thousands of genes every year, a scalable platform like Genedata Expressionist for the analysis of large volumes of molecular profiling data is important to support the identification and characterization of the most suitable genes.

Genedata Expressionist streamlines workflow-based data processing and integrated analysis of large experimental datasets for biomarker identification. Expressionist is used for automated quality assessment and pre-processing of omics data, including microarray and PCR data, and allows researchers to integrate laboratory data with molecular profiling data obtained by transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics applications.
