IPA 5.0, a software application from Ingenuity, enables three pivotal capabilities: biomarker analysis, molecular toxicology analysis, and interactive signaling and metabolic pathways. IPA-Biomarker allows researchers to rapidly identify and prioritize the most biologically relevant and plausible biomarker candidates in a genomic or proteomic dataset, based on contextual information connecting those biomarkers mechanistically to disease, and identifying those detected in bodily fluids. With the newly added toxicology content and Toxicology Analysis workflow, even non-experts can rapidly assess whether their candidate compound is associated with a particular toxicological profile and understand the underlying mechanism of toxicity. Finally, the Interactive Signaling and Metabolic Pathways solution lets researchers extend beyond boundaries of the classical, well-characterized signaling and metabolic pathways.

Fast & Easy Typing
CLC MLST Module is a plug-in to the CLC Combined Workbench and CLC Gene Workbench. The module is designed to make it easy and fast to handle data when doing multi-locus sequence typing (MLST), a method used for typing bacterial isolates. It uses 6-11 housekeeping genes which makes the method amenable to automatic sequencing machines. MLST is a fast and unambiguous way of typing bacteria. The CLC MLST Module is integrated with online public databases for MLST schemes and compares the new isolate with already existing sequence types.

Build Literature Reports
ActiveMotif’s AKS2 is a knowledge management software system that analyzes and organizes biochemical and biomedical literature. AKS2 extracts key biological or biomedical concepts from the abstracts, analyzes all the relationships between the concepts, and presents the results in an easy to understand summary report. AKS2 can be applied to disease-based research to aid in the finding of related drugs, genes, etc. in published abstracts, and can enable researchers to explore and discover relationships in the literature that are not easily uncovered with traditional information retrieval approaches.

Patent & Sequence Search
GenomeQuest 4.0 is a web application for sequence search analysts in biotech law and research. It is composed of three functional elements integrated under a browser-based interface: data content, consisting of approximately 127 million DNA sequences and associated annotations, and more than 49 million DNA sequences with associated patent documentation; a suite of search strategies; and a query result viewing and filtering capability. GenomeQuest has a published API, and complies with Web 2.0 standards. (See Bio•IT World, Nov. 2006.)
