Thomson Reuters Buys GeneGo Biology Solutions

Posted Dec 01 2010 1:12am

GeneGo’s customers are Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies as well as academic and government institutions such as FDA, NIH and EPA.  The company image sells software and their data solutions as well as offering outsourced services on a contracted basis for various types of genetic reports.  The Meta Core pathway analysis and data mining for gene information , pathways, maps and diseases I am guessing is probably the most used software application and names such as Harvard and the NIH are among a few they list. 

Thomson Reuters Healthcare in addition to news has their own diversified area whereby they research and present both very scientific and investor type information.  They also have some software available in the support areas for purchase ranging from payer solutions, provider software and clinical trials and perhaps this is where GeneGo may have a link as well in time.  BD
