Syngenta Adds MS Data Analysis System from Genedata to Biomarker Discovery Efforts

Syngenta expanded its biomarker discovery partnership with Genedata. It added the Genedata Expressionist Refiner MS module for LC/MS and GC/MS metabolomic raw data processing and analysis to its existing Genedata Expressionist system.

Refiner MS expands Expressionist to process and analyze metabolomic raw MS data separately and in conjunction with microarray data, improving efficiency and enhancing the biomarker discovery process.

Syngenta has been using the Genedata Expressionist Refiner Array and Analyst modules to process and analyze microarray data since 2005. With the rapid expansion of metabolomics research and the associated data volumes generated, Syngenta will now use Refiner MS to integrate MS data in its biomarker discovery projects.
