Thermo Fisher Scientific announces an updated version of its web-based ProteinCenter software which includes more than 223 million protein-protein interactions in its database and direct support for the Cytoscape open source platform. Cytoscape is used to visualize complex networks in proteomics data. This version of ProteinCenter includes plug-ins for bioinformatics, social network analysis, and the semantic web.
ProteinCenter software enables scientists in the proteomics field to quickly and confidently interpret complex data sets and extract meaningful biological information within minutes. Conversely, conventional bioinformatics software tools often require months of analysis. Using ProteinCenter software proteomics scientist can filter, cluster, compare and analyze single and combined datasets without overcoming the hurdles of having proteins that exist under different names and accession keys in different databases.
