Institute for Systems Biology Taps GeneGo Technology

  • The Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) licensed GeneGo’s OMICs data analysis suite, MetaCore and 1-2-3 Workflow. The deal will allow all ISB researchers access to GeneGo pathway analysis and systems biology tools. MetaCore will be integrated with Cytoscape, an open source network visualization software supported by ISB.

    "The manually curated content available from GeneGo is exceptional and will allow us to advance our projects," according to Nat Goodman, a senior research scientist at ISB. "We are initiating several research projects together that will hopefully result in publications."

Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
