11-02-2016 - Navigating an Ocean of Biological Data in the Modern Era Scientists and software engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) have developed a new -omics visualization tool, Arrowland, which combines different realms of functional genomics data in a single intuitive interface. The aim of this system is to provide scientists an easier way to navigate the ever-growing amounts of biological data generated by the postgenomic revolution.
11-01-2016 - Agilent Technologies and PureHoney Technologies to Develop New Applications for RapidFire/MS System Agilent Technologies Inc. and PureHoney Technologies today announced a co-marketing agreement to develop new applications on the Agilent RapidFire 365 High-throughput Mass Spectrometry System. They will independently create new workflows for pharma and biopharma research, as well as forensic toxicology and metabolomics analysis.
10-24-2016 - How plants time their flowering - Professor Markus Schmid, Umeå University, Sweden, is leading a project to find out how flowering time is regulated on cell level. "By using advanced gene sequencing and metabolomics, we are hoping to gain new insights into the function of the genetic, regulatory networks, and also more knowledge on what controls the time of flowering."
Metabolomics Workbench Highlights
Human Metabolome Gene/Protein Database (MGP) - The Human Metabolome Gene/Protein Database (MGP) of metabolome-related genes and proteins contains data for over 7300 genes and over 15,500 proteins. Each record is enhanced with Gene Ontology (GO) annotations, REACTOME pathway annotations, InterPro domain annotations, UniProt annotations, and a listing of related proteins. MGP can be searched by any of MGP_ID, Entrez Gene_ID, Gene Name, Gene Symbol, Synonyms, Alternate names, HMDB Pathway, and Reactome Pathway.
