NIH Library Makes MetaCore Accessible Site Wide

September 29, 2009

ST. JOSEPH, Mich., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ — GeneGo, Inc., the leading systems biology tools company, announced today that the NIH Library at Bethesda has licensed MetaCore for NIH staff. MetaCore is an easy to use pathway analysis and data mining tool that provides users with fast easy access to up to date pertinent systems biology related information. Researchers can run simple searches as well as very specific Boolean queries and have answers in seconds or minutes rather than weeks and months using traditional methods. MetaCore also has unique tools for enrichment and interactome analysis of experimental data from gene expression, proteomic, and micro RNA to assay data as well as biomarker studies. Medha Bhagwat, Biomedical Informationist at the NIH Library, is the contact person for information about MetaCore access.

“Many NIH departments have been customers of GeneGo for years, and it is nice to provide broader access to NIH researchers through the library,” said Julie Bryant, GeneGo’s VP of Business development. “Libraries provide a central location for researchers, bench scientists, oncologists, neurologists, bioinformaticians, and core labs to go for systems biology and pathway analysis tools. We will continue to work with the NIH to provide high quality support and training.”
