PHOENIX, August 16, 2004-5AM Solutions, a software solution provider enabling biomedical research, today announced the release of Microarray Enterprise ManagerTM
(MEM). The solution was delivered in collaboration with leading scientists from the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), Duke University, and the University of California, Los Angeles. MEM is a web-based solution that manages all aspects of expression profiling laboratory workflow, data annotation, standardization, and sharing. This solution will facilitate more rapid progress in medical research by connecting researchers across the world with, and ensure they can easily combine and share, genomic data.
Sophisticated technologies from the Human Genome Project have enabled researchers to understand the basic tenets of human disease, which will eventually lead to cures. While expression microarrays are now a common genome-scale tool used widely in research, the vast amounts of data created by this technology at distant sites are rarely combined - slowing the progress of medical research. Collaboration and consortia, key elements of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Roadmap, require sharing what and how experiments are conducted and what the results are in a meaningful way to thousands of geographically disparate scientists.
Adding to the complexity, the data must be collected, managed and distributed in a consistent manner across organizations. MEM orchestrates consistent data annotations that meet evolving industry standards for projects, samples, and the derivative microarray data.
"This solution will result in scientists being able to share data quickly and obtain real insight into human disease," said Dr. Dietrich Stephan, TGen's director of neurogenomics and Chairman of a Microarray Consortium funded by the NIH.
