do you know PathwayAssist? - (Dec/27/2003 )
Have you tried these software? PathwayAssist 2.0 (Adrian Genomics) or Vector pathBlazer (InforMax)
Could you share your experience
Thanks all input
PathwayAssist is a quite powerful tool for both visualization and analysis of networks.
Good thing about it is that it has a literature mining module which can connect directly to pubmed and deliver new facts.
It also has a huge database of facts already extracted from Pubmed - so there is plenty of knowledge to mine.
The interface is good, but requires a little bit of learining, thoug I find that it worth it.
Never tred the other software, sorry.
Stratagene is selling PathwayAssist. You can find them on hte web.
excellent programs and very useful!
This technology looks have a big potential in research. But Iím asking myself if the acquisition of these kind of programs is a good inversion. I heard this kind of systems are really expensive. How much, for example, PathwayAssist costs?
I suppose that the real core of this technology is the database or databases and I also heard that the access to this databases could has an additional cost, is this true?
Hi, PathwayAssist is not too expensive - it is ablut $2000 for academics, and the database is included.
Also, it has MedScan text mining module which can update my pathways with recent information from PubMed, so I don't have to wait for the database updates.
