GeneGo biology apps

Having previously limited itself to PCs, GeneGo now says that several of its biological analysis applications are compatible with Mac and Linux systems; this stems partly from support for alternatives to Internet Explorer, namely Firefox 2 and Safari 3.0. MetaCore is used to analyze experiment data for gene expressions and pathways, and lets users visualize and cross-validate information. Over 500 interactive maps are included, and users can filter content to concentrate on aspects such as disease or tissue.

MetaLink complements MetaCore, by letting users upload material and overlay it for data mining purposes. MapEditor is a bioinformatics module, which lets users edit existing pathway maps as well as convert networks into map views for pathway analysis, or draw whole-cloth regulatory or metabolic maps. Finally, MetaRodent integrates with MetaCore, MetaDrug and other platforms, and allows several types of functional analysis with help from mouse and rat data compiled from experimental reports.
