ST JOSEPH, Mich., Nov. 22 -- GeneGo, Inc., a leading provider of databases, software and services in systems biology and chemistry, and Agilent Technologies, Inc., the world's premier measurement company and a technology leader in chemical analysis, life sciences, electronics and communications, announced today that they have integrated Agilent's GeneSpring Bioinformatics Solution with MetaCore.
GeneSpring GX 11.5, released today, introduces a multi-omics microarray and mass-spectrometry based analysis suite to handle transcriptomics, genomics, metabolomics and proteomics data in one application. GeneSpring GX 11.5 includes a direct connection to the MetaCore pathway analysis engine that allows users to seamlessly upload expression data analyzed in GeneSpring for pathway analysis in MetaCore. This connection is part of every expression workflow in GeneSpring, allowing automatic experiment creation and entity annotation in MetaCore.
"We are very pleased to integrate GeneGo's MetaCore pathway analysis capabilities into GeneSpring's expression workflows," said Michael Janis, GeneSpring product manager at Agilent Technologies. "Our users have access to industry-leading analysis and visualization tools within GeneSpring and the ability to combine statistical analysis in GeneSpring with MetaCore's strengths in pathway analysis will enable a deeper understanding of their research in a biological context."
"This will allow our joint customers to seamlessly work with omics data in the context of pathways," said Julie Bryant vice president of business development. "MetaCore can concurrently visualize multiple types of data and will be able to take advantage of this new functionality in GeneSpring which will be very helpful to our joint customers."
About GeneGo, Inc.
GeneGo, Inc. develops systems biology technology such as compound based pathway analysis, cheminformatics and bioinformatics software for life science research. The original computational MetaDiscovery platform allows an integration and expert analysis of different kinds of experimental data (mRNA expression, proteomics, metabolomics, microRNA assays and other phenotypic data) and relevant bioactive chemistry (metabolites, drugs, other xenobiotics) within the framework of curated biological pathways and networks. GeneGo's flagship product, MetaCore 6.3, assists pharmaceutical scientists in the areas of target selection and validation, data mining in biology, identification of biomarkers for disease states and toxicology. The second product, MetaDrug 6.3 is designed for prediction of human metabolism, toxicity and biological effects for novel small molecules compounds. MetaBase represents the knowledge base for MetaCore. For more information, visit the company's website at www.genego.com.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
