Syngenta improves metabolomic data processing with biomarker solution
Genedata has extended its biomarker discovery collaboration with Syngenta, a global agrochemical company. Syngenta has added the Genedata Expressionist Refiner MS module for LC-MS and GC-MS metabolomic raw data processing and analysis to its existing Genedata Expressionist system. Refiner MS expands Expressionist to process and analyse metabolomic raw MS data separately and in conjunction with microarray data, dramatically improving efficiency and enhancing the biomarker discovery process at Syngenta.
Syngenta has been successfully using the Genedata Expressionist Refiner Array and Analyst modules to process and analyse microarray data since 2005. With the rapid expansion of metabolomics research and the associated data volumes generated, Syngenta now uses Refiner MS to integrate MS data in their biomarker discovery projects.
With Refiner MS Syngenta can process more rapidly and with full confidence in quality extremely large amounts of MS data directly from multiple hardware platforms via user defined, flexible workflows. Peaks selection is performed automatically in Refiner MS while statistical analysis and biological pathway mapping are done in the powerful analytical module Analyst.
