RNAi licenses database platform from GeneGo.
GeneGo, Inc. (St. Joseph, MI), a leading provider of software and databases for systems biology Systems biology, a field of study in the biosciences, focuses on the systematic study of complex interactions in biological systems. Particularly from 2000 onwards, the term is used widely in the biosciences, and in a variety of contexts. , said that RCL RCL - Reduced Control Language. A simplified job control language for OS360, translated to IBM JCL. "Reduced Control Language for Non- Professional Users", K. Appel in Command Languages, C. Unger ed, N-H 1973. has licensed MetaCore for its RNA interference RNA interference
A process in which the introduction of double-stranded RNA into a cell inhibits the expression of genes. drug discovery efforts. MetaCore is an integrated platform for the analysis of different types of experimental data in drug discovery. MetaCore applies a proprietary, manually curated, human protein interaction and pathway database to drug discovery. The flexible database architecture enables straightforward integration of in house and third party software and databases. MetaCore also has easy to use software for building, visualization and analysis of tissue specific biological networks with and without experimental data.
"We looked at several systems biology packages and found that MetaCore suited our needs the best," said Mr.Yukikazu Natori, Chairman of RNAi. "The system is flexible for customization, and the GeneGo team is open minded for collaborative development. We needed a flexible partner that was willing to integrate with our current siRNA technology."
"We welcome RCL as our first Japanese customer," said Tatiana Nikolskaya, Ph.D., President and CSO (Chief Security Officer) The person in charge of all staff members who are responsible for promulgating, enforcing and administering security policies for all systems within an enterprise or division. of GeneGo. "RCL has built an impressive and unique technology portfolio in the RNA interference area. Their findings are very synergistic with pathway analysis of complex diseases we are working on. We consider this agreement as the first step in long term collaboration in the intersection of these two exciting technologies."
GeneGo is developing systems biology technology for life science research. The original computational platform allows an integration and expert analysis of different kinds of experimental data (mRNA expression, proteomics, metabolites Metabolites
Substances produced by metabolism or by a metabolic process.

GeneGo's flagship product A primary product of a company, which is typically why the company was founded and/or what made it well known. For example, MS-DOS, Windows and the Microsoft Office suite have been flagship products of Microsoft. CorelDRAW is a flagship product of Corel Corporation. , MetaCore, assists pharmaceutical scientists in the areas of target selection and validation, identification of biomarkers for disease states and toxicology. The second product, MetaDrug is designed for prediction of human metabolism and toxicity for novel small molecules compounds. MetaBase represents the knowledge base for MetaCore.
RCL is a biotechnology company in the field of functional genomics Noun 1. functional genomics - the branch of genomics that determines the biological function of the genes and their products
genomics - the branch of genetics that studies organisms in terms of their genomes (their full DNA sequences) based on RNA interference. RCL conducts two types of business. One is research support business for life science and the other is drug discovery business. RCL's unparallel RNA interference science and technology achieves high specificity of gene knock-down while minimizing unwanted off-target effects. RCL has already identified and applied the patent about 820,000 kinds of siRNA/shRNA/Oligo interference for all of human and mice genes known publicly. RCL's licensees can access to the most comprehensive RNAi design system, siDirect with usage of 820,000 sequences and get high-quality chemically synthetic siRNA manufactured by Proligo, siPerfect at the most attractive price in the market. RCL currently has two business offices and a wet lab and a dry lab in Japan with 20 employees and plans to enhance GMP GMP (guanosine monophosphate): see guanine. functionality for preclinical study this year.
