Integromics S.L. Integrates GeneBio's Phenyx with OmicsHub Proteomics
Geneva, Switzerland, and Madrid, Spain- September 22, 2009 -Geneva Bioinformatics (GeneBio) SA and Integromics S.L. today announced that GeneBio's Phenyx software platform for MS data analysis has been successfully integrated into Integromics' latest proteomics data analysis and management tool - OmicsHub Proteomics. This integration gives Phenyx and OmicsHub Proteomics users the possibility of combining results from different search engines thereby increasing the accuracy of the protein identification process.
OmicsHub Proteomics serve as an end-to-end proteomics data analysis and management system, from protein peak detection to generation of final reports. It has been developed in cooperation with ProteoRed, the Spanish National Proteomics Network, ensuring in this way that the solution is close to the reality of a proteomics laboratory and that it helps to solve the most typical bottlenecks of this field.
Developed in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), Phenyx is GeneBio's renowned software platform for the identification, quantitation and characterization of proteins and peptides from mass spectrometry data. The Phenyx platform is specifically designed to meet the concurrent demands of high-throughput MS data analysis and dynamic results assessment via a customizable architecture and an innovative user-friendly interface.

"One of the biggest advantages of OmicsHub Proteomics is that we can have integrated in one single platform all the steps of an MS experiment thus reducing time and data management complexity," said Dr. Juan Pablo Albar, General Coordinator of ProteoRed. "As our feedback contributed from the early stages of its creation, OmicsHub Proteomics solves typical problems we find on a daily basis and makes life easier when performing tasks such as multiple search engine support, pathways integration or report generation for external customers. On the other hand, we are glad to see that commercial companies also include in their software functionality which helps laboratories to easily meet proteomics standards such as PRIDE or MIAPE. Since Phenyx is widely used within our network due to its unique capabilities for protein identification, OmicsHub enables our members to take a greater advantage of a central solution like Phenyx."
"We are pleased with the integration of Phenyx within OmicsHub Proteomics as this should open up Phenyx to a host of new users," said Nasri Nahas, CEO of GeneBio. "The OmicsHub Proteomics platform answers proteomics researchers' needs for proteomics data automation and data management/analysis; combined with the outstanding performance of Phenyx, we envision a winning platform that will immediately bring great value to users and at the same time instantly expand the potential Phenyx user base. We are excited about the future possibilities of this relationship."
"With OmicsHub Proteomics, Integromics has stepped into the Proteomics field and we view proteomics as an area where Integromics can leverage its expertise in the life sciences industry and add value. OmicsHub Proteomics has been designed to provide a custom proteomics solution and the integration of Phenyx will provide our end users added flexibility in the protein analysis process," said Prof. Jose Maria Carazo, CSO of Integromics.
Both Integromics S.L. and GeneBio will be present at HUPO 2009 in Toronto, Canada, from September 26th to September 30th, Integromics at booth #42 and GeneBio at booth #19.
