GOBIOM reaches out to Academia

GOBIOM Screenshot

Dr. Atul J. Butte and his group from Stanford University, cited the utility of our Biomarker database (GOBIOM) for their work on “Method for Monitoring Allograft rejection” ( WO 2010/093869 A1).The same group have also cited the use of GOBIOM in PLoS Journal article. GOBIOM (GVK BIO Online Biomarker Database) is an online scientific database product of GVK BIO. As a part of their research, they compared their predicted protein sets with known diagnostic protein biomarkers in the clinical and preclinical studies in GOBIOM. GOBIOM contains 12,000 known biomarkers for 493 therapeutic indications curated from 31,000 unique references. For 22 out of 41 diseases, known diagnostic protein biomarkers were statistically significantly enriched in our predicted protein sets.

Standford University, USAThe result of the study demonstrated that integrating gene expression microarray measurements from disease samples with publicly-available data sets can be a powerful, fast, and cost-effective strategy for the discovery of new diagnostic serum protein biomarkers.
