University of Glasgow employs GenoLogics software

The University of Glasgow recently installed the GenoLogics Proteus solution for its proteomics research in the Sir Henry Wellcome Functional Genomics Facility, with plans to add the Geneus solution for genomics research in the near future. The software will enable research that crosses the typical discipline boundaries, combining proteomics and gene expression data in systems biology applications.

In addition to genomics and proteomics, the Sir Henry Wellcome Functional Genomics Facility covers tissue microanalysis and bioinformatics. RASOR, a £14m investment by the UK Research Councils and Scottish Funding Council, is a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Strathclyde with the purpose of designing new proteomics methods and equipment to solve cutting edge research challenges.

Dr Andrew Pitt, the director of the Sir Henry Wellcome Functional Genomics Facility and RASOR, said: 'I'm increasingly convinced that it is crucial that software and database informatics technologies complement and accelerate the use of proteomics and genomics instrumentation and technologies in order to make research advances. The GenoLogics solution integrates with our instruments and allows flexible workflows, which frees our researchers to focus on science rather than data management issues.'
