Compendia Bioscience Signs Oncomine Licensing Agreement with AstraZeneca

Compendia Bioscience licensed Oncomine™, the company’s compendium of oncology gene expression profiles and analysis tools, to AstraZeneca. The firm will conduct a year-long pilot to evaluate the long-term role of this product in its cancer research programs.

This licensing agreement gives AstraZeneca access to Oncomine Concepts Edition (OCM), a value-added product extension of Oncomine that reportedly combines nearly 7,000 proprietary cancer gene signatures with 11,000 gene, protein, drug, and pathway signatures collected from the literature and other public sources.
