BSI Science Exchange Partnership

PALO ALTO, CA, December 11, 2017 – Science Exchange, the world’s leading and most secure enterprise platform for outsourced research and development (R&D) services, announced the partnership with Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc. to offer online access to its protein de novo sequencing services to scientists around the globe.

As the creators of the well-known, highly established PEAKS Software, the golden standard of de novo sequencing, Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc., offers their de novo sequencing expertise to scientists at a new level by sequencing the samples themselves.

“Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc. has developed a proprietary de novo protein sequencing workflow to retrieve the amino acid sequence of an unknown antibody protein with state-of-the-art mass spectrometry techniques. Through this workflow, the sequence assembly is purely based on de novo sequencing. Therefore, no database, cDNA, mRNA, or hybridoma cell line is required,” exclaims Baozhen Shan, CEO of Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc. “With constant ongoing research at Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc., the advanced technology will ensure our service delivers a highly accurate sequence, identification of sequence variants, glycosylations, and unknown modifications.  By partnering with Science Exchange, these sequencing services will now be available to researchers all over the world to help them make breakthrough discoveries.”

Over the last few years, Science Exchange has undergone extensive growth and recently received a $28 million in Series C funding led by Norwest Venture Partners. By continuing to team up with companies like Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc. Science Exchange is providing researchers worldwide with access to the most important scientific services to advance their experiments.

“We are excited to partner with Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc. to make available its protein de novo sequencing services to scientists worldwide,” said Elizabeth Iorns, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Science Exchange.  “Science Exchange is committed to adding the most innovative and qualified service providers to our platform, so scientists have the services they need securely and readily available to aid their discoveries. Bioinformatics Solutions, Inc. met our rigorous standards for quality and compliance while demonstrating breakthrough discoveries in the field of proteomics analysis.”

Guest post: The rise of contractual conservatism – will it subvert sharing of scientific resources?

March 7, 2012 | Posted by Guest in Core facilities |

This is a guest post by Stephen Byers, Director of the Lombardi Shared Resources at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Georgetown University (full bio below). 

As director of shared resources at Georgetown University’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and as Director of the Translation Technologies component of the Georgetown/Howard Univerity CTSA, my goal is to provide our researchers with the highest quality experimental resources, at the best possible price.  Sometimes that means adding in a new technology to our core facilities, sometimes it means reaching out to our CTSA network partners, sometimes it means negotiating with another institution altogether.   One reason I attend the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) annual conference is to keep up with cutting edge resources and explore what it makes sense for us expand or introduce as part of our core services and when it makes sense for us to find partners.

Different core facilities develop specializations, driven both by foresight as well as serendipity.   Georgetown, for example, has invested in an outstanding Metabolomics Shared Resource Program.  We’re finding that, in many cases, high throughput analysis of metabolites in blood or urine with LC-Mass Spectrometry is as good as genomic profiling at segregating outcomes in diseases… and a whole lot cheaper.  We can generate as many as 20-30,000 metabolite data points in an hour at $60/hr for 6 samples.  The real challenge for this field, as for much of post-genomic science, is the informatics that goes into analyzing all this data.  Under the guidance of our metabolomics gurus, Al Fornace and Amrita Cheema, and Medical Informatics Director Subha Madhavan, we are improving our informatics services and finding no shortage of investigators eager to take advantage of this technology.
