GENEGO KICKS OFF THE METAMINER STEM CELL PROJECT WITH INDUSTRY AND ACADEMICS

St. Joseph, MI. September 1st, 2009 – GeneGo, Inc., the leading systems biology tools company, announced today that it launched a collaborative development project on systems biology of stem cells with global pharmaceutical companies and leading academic centers as members. The 24-month project aims to create a comprehensive “knowledge base” on development and biology of different types of stem cells. The knowledge base will be supported by GeneGo’s MetaDiscovery tools and applied in experimental research on stem cells and human diseases.

“We are really excited about this project,” said Yuri Nikolsky, CEO of GeneGo. “Although one of the hottest areas of life science, no systematic effort was done on methodical annotation of current experimental knowledge on stem cells, and we intend to fill this gap. Understanding the biology of embryonic adult and neoplastic…

(Neoplasm: A tumor. An abnormal growth of tissue. The word neoplasm is not synonymous with cancer. A neoplasm may be benign or malignant. )

…stem cells is key in both drug discovery and fundamental research in many fields from embryology and ontogenesis to cancer and diabetes.

“We are very glad to be able to attract an excellent team of members for the cause,” said Julie Bryant, GeneGo’s VP of Business Development. “An industry-academia consortium model fits well with our development objectives in such a complex and controversial field. We believe that the members will see a strong positive return on their investment within several months from the project’s launch.”
