Munich, Germany, September 11, 2013 - Genomatix today announced it has added the Genomatix Pathway System (GePS) to BaseSpace Apps, Illumina's dedicated applications store and informatics community dedicated to advancing genomic analysis.

Using GePS, researchers can generate and visualize genetic networks and pathways and easily access a multitude of data on the genes and gene-gene connections they consist of. Combined with expression level data generated through next-generation sequencing (NGS) experiments, GePS helps scientists identify the key players within biological processes at a functional level.

Klaus May, CEO of Genomatix, says: "We're happy to add our technology to Illumina's portfolio of BaseSpace applications. Scientists can now overlay NGS results with the knowledge and data provided by the Genomatix Pathway System. Distributing our software via the cloud infrastructure of BaseSpace will not only enable users to seamlessly access their data, it also makes it possible for us to offer our software at a very competitive price."

The Genomatix Pathway System enables researchers to see the biology behind their data by combining NGS results with multiple levels of existing knowledge. Associations with signal transduction pathways, molecular functions, biological processes, tissues, diseases, small molecules and co-cited genes and transcription factors deliver the insight needed to understand the functional context of Omics data. Networks between genes, transcription factors, small molecules and diseases can be generated on various levels and the underlying data is always just one mouse-click away for deeper inspection. The intuitive visualization of expression level values from various conditions or time points combined with data like methylation or histone modification truly gives users the "big picture" without losing any details.

Informatics solutions available through BaseSpace Apps allow customers to utilize the tools from a growing community of academic, commercial, and open source providers.
