The University of Florida has renewed its site license for Pathway Studio, which it has used in medical and agricultural-related gene expression and proteomics studies.
Pathway Studio, from Ariadne Genomics, streamlines hypothesis generation by creating visual interactive networks of biological relationships extracted from scientific literature and reference data sources.
The license is available to all scientists at the University of Florida via ICBR Bioinformatics Core. 'We work on many of non-model organisms and create microarrays for them using 454 and Agilent technologies,' said Li Liu, bioinformatics director at the ICBR Bioinformatics Core. 'After mapping genes from these non-model organisms to model organisms, we use Pathway Studio to explore the gene networks.'
