ST. JOSEPH, Mich., September 25, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneGo, Inc., the leading systems biology tools company, announced today that Bristol-Myers Squibb has licensed access to all major GeneGo products. Using the licensed GeneGo technology, research and development sites within Bristol-Myers Squibb will have the ability to start with chemical compound structures and/or genomics data to address questions from both chemistry and biology domains. Bristol-Myers Squibb can also access GeneGo tools to build their own canonical pathway maps using public, GeneGo, and proprietary data and have those maps included in statistical calculations and overlays. In addition, Bristol Myers Squibb researchers can leverage GeneGo products to overlay their own internal interaction data in the context of manually curated pathways for more elucidation.
