BETHESDA, Md.--(BW HealthWire)--Nov. 7, 2001

InforMax, Inc. (Nasdaq:INMX), a leading global provider of bioinformatics software solutions, today announced the release of GenoMax(TM) version 3.2.

This new release contains significant enhancements to the GenoMax enterprise bioinformatics system, including the addition of Gene Expression Analysis II.

"Comprehensive and integrated software solutions are essential to enable sophisticated problem solving, data mining and efficient analytical processes." said Stephen Lincoln, Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President of Product Development at InforMax. "The ongoing development of our GenoMax enterprise bioinformatics system affirms InforMax's commitment to advance the science of bioinformatics through the delivery of unique software and services that improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of the target discovery and validation process."

GenoMax version 3.2 enhanced features include an innovative high-performance engine for GenBank data storage, accelerated initial data loading and indexing, improved administrative capabilities, and enhanced scripting to improve end-user productivity and reduce administrative costs.

Additionally, GenoMax version 3.2 includes numerous new features in the Sequence Analysis and Protein-Protein Interaction Analysis modules.

Gene Expression Analysis II, the next generation of GenoMax gene expression software, features newly designed data import utilities and additional data visualization tools, which allow detailed data quality verification and provide powerful annotation capabilities for analysis of gene function.

The Gene Expression Analysis II module supports diverse gene expression data formats and provides customers with the industry's most comprehensive solution for analyzing and understanding gene expression information.

"GenoMax and the sophisticated analytical capabilities in the Gene Expression Analysis II module are key enablers for our work here at the University of North Carolina. The robust data import capabilities simplify the growing challenge of managing data commonly found with other gene expression analysis products," said David Fenstermacher, Director of Bioinformatics at the University of North Carolina.

Rapidly becoming the industry standard, GenoMax is an enterprise bioinformatics system that enables High-Throughput Research(TM) (HTR), InforMax's process for minimizing the time and cost of both discovering and validating valuable targets for pharmaceutical, therapeutic, and diagnostic development.

This modular family of tools is designed to work with one or more types of genomic and proteomic data, and includes Sequence, Gene Expression, 3D Structure, Protein-Protein Interaction and Genome Analysis modules.
