TGen Licenses Data Mining Software from Active Motif

AKS2 will be used to aid pharmacogenomic-based research.

Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) licensed Active Motif’s data mining software. It will use AKS2, or almaKnowledgeServer™, to interrogate genomic-profiling data, such as high-throughput siRNA screening.

"AKS2 will help us integrate prior knowledge located in the literature in a rapid and efficient manner,” says Jeff Kiefer, head of the knowledge mining lab in TGen's pharmaceutical genomics division. “We will use AKS2 as an integral part of the knowledge mining activities that support the pharmacogenomic-based research activities within TGen.”
