CHANNEL PARTNERSHIP MARKETS MASTERCATALOG & DECYPHER.

EraGen Biosciences and TimeLogic Corporation have formed a product development and marketing collaboration to deliver tools for managing high-throughput sequence analysis. EraGen has developed the MasterCatalog(TM) platform, a bioinformatics system that combines proprietary database clustering and a suite of powerful mining and analysis tools. TimeLogic produces DeCypher(R) accelerated bioinformatics computing systems that bring the power of extremely high speed computing designs to the service of genetic discovery. The synergy of EraGen's proprietary gene family databases with TimeLogic's high speed computing gives an unprecedented combination of accuracy and speed to increase genomics-based discovery. Both companies will promote each other's technologies through the creation of a channel partnership.

In announcing the new relationship, Dr. Gideon Shapiro, president and CEO of EraGen added, "EraGen's MasterCatalog already contains over 50,000 protein families and continues to grow. That's about twenty times more than the popular PFAM database and so delivers a lot more discovery potential, in ready-to-use sequence and HMM formats -- curated over time. DeCypher's accelerated computing delivers the value of MasterCatalog to researchers in real time."

"We're very pleased that EraGen selected DeCypher technology to be the core computational horsepower for MasterCatalog analyses," said Jim Lindelien, chairman and CEO of TimeLogic Corporation. "MasterCatalog organizes protein domains and families in a uniquely comprehensive manner. With this data organization plus DeCypher's raw speed, our customers will save days to weeks of effort otherwise needed to assign gene function. It's a perfect synergy of exciting technologies."
