FIZ Karlsruhe now markets in-house version of USGENE®, the USPTO Genetic Sequences Database, in Europe

06.05.2009
Agreement gives FIZ Karlsruhe the mandate to operate as SequenceBase Corporation's marketing agent for USGENE® in-house version / USGENE® data available for customized subscription download / expert customer support

For the purpose of promoting the USGENE® in-house version more effectively in Europe, US-based SequenceBase Corporation and FIZ Karlsruhe have entered into an agreement according to which FIZ Karlsruhe will act as a sales agent on behalf of the SequenceBase Corporation.

In this capacity, FIZ Karlsruhe will sell and market the USGENE® database in-house version to customers and prospective customers of the SequenceBase Corporation in enterprises and institutes throughout Europe. USGENE® is also available via FIZ Karlsruhe's leading online-service STN InternationalSM. Both offerings complement each other, but target different user groups.

Scientists working in drug discovery operations, academia, and life sciences may now benefit from the customized in-house version of SequenceBase Corporation's prestigious USGENE® database. USGENE® is the ground-breaking resource for life-science intellectual property professionals, providing unrivalled searchable access to all available peptide and nucleotide sequences from the published applications and issued patents of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It is the unparalleled resource in which to perform freedom-to-operate, prior art, validity, infringement and competitive intelligence patent sequence searches within United States gene patent publications.

USGENE® data are available in customized subscription formats to suit various in-house molecular biology patent information needs. The database can be implemented and integrated in other life science products such as Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Drug Discovery Platforms, Patent Portals, Web Host interfaces and other online information services. USGENE® data can be provided in industry standard or customized data formats to suit particular in-house needs.

According to the customers' needs, the USGENE® database can be purchased by segments of data such as class, art unit, patent assignee, inventor, publication date, or any other desired fields. The entire back file from 1982 to date can be licensed; regular weekly updates are provided to subscribers within 3 days of publication by the United States Patent Office.

An agreement between SequenceBase Corp. and FIZ Karlsruhe with respect to the offering of USGENE® via the online-service STN International has been existing since 2006. The unique combination of prestigious STN® patent sequence databases DGENE (GENESEQTM), PCTGEN, REGISTRYSM and USGENE® gives life-science intellectual property professionals the ability to make business critical decisions with much greater certainty.

"We are pleased with this opportunity to deepen our partnership with SequenceBase Corporation which has already proven successful with our joint offering of USGENE® on STN® ", said Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, President and CEO of FIZ Karlsruhe. "Both partners now desire to further collaborate for the purpose of promoting the USGENE® database more effectively in Europe in order to attract new customer groups." Rainer Stuike-Prill, Vice-President Marketing & Sales at FIZ Karlsruhe stated: "We are convinced that FIZ Karlsruhe's long-standing experience in providing information services and customer support will make this new project a success and fully satisfy our customers' demands for first-class information and excellent service."

"Once again, we are delighted to partner with FIZ Karlsruhe, in this new alliance", commented Martin Goffman, President and CEO of the SequenceBase Corporation. "This agreement will strengthen our position in Europe while at the same time providing exceptional local service to our European subscribers".

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
