Ariadne announces the launch of Pathway Studio Explore for the Affymetrix GeneAtlas Personal Microarray System. Ariadne’s Pathway Studio Explore provides a biological context for the analysis of gene expression data to identify biological signal flow, key regulators, and affected pathways. Pathway Studio Explore can build and explore protein interaction networks, perform network analysis of experimental data using powerful data mining and network building tools. Part of the GeneAtlas personal microarray system from Affymetrix, Pathway Studio Explore offers customers easy-to-use data analysis and visualization software provided with instrumentation that is easily installed on any laboratory computer.
“Pathway Studio Explore can help microarray users obtain biologically relevant results immediately from their experiments through visualization effects in a pathway or network context”, says Gabriella Armin, Director of Marketing for Ariadne. “The GeneAtlas system along with Pathway Studio Explore eliminates complex workflows and analysis for researchers with little to no microarray experience. Pathway Studio Explore is a streamlined version of Ariadne’s more comprehensive Pathway Studio Desktop software and has been designed for researchers who are just getting started with microarray analysis.”
The GeneAtlas system employs software from Partek and Ariadne to drive workflow-driven statistical and pathway analysis. “The partnership with Affymetrix showcases the flexibility of our technology to be adaptable to various types of profiling instrumentation”, says Ilya Mazo, PhD, President and CEO of Ariadne. “Ariadne has enjoyed a long relationship with Affymetrix and their GeneChip-compatible Applications Program, having analyzed gene expression data and provided pathway-level annotation and functional analysis for Affymetrix microarray systems since 2006. We feel that relationship continues to grow as we find new ways to serve the common research communities.”
