Metalife BioExplorer compiles automatically a non-redundant set of detailed dossiers about genes and proteins providing a fast and easy access to all relevant information. These dossiers contain information from more than 80 public databases and are additionally enhanced with text extracted relationships from scientific publications.

Metalife Genome Comparison Tool

Metalife Genome Comparison Tool incorporates a graphical user interface that allows our users to analyze and compare genomes, contigs, CDSs, protein sequences, and various user defined regions on the genomes on a large scale, and also to look for their sequence annotations in selected databases.
Metalife Genome Comparison Tool integrates also algorithms for pairwise local alignments like BLAST, MegaBLAST and BLASTZ.

Metalife Recognition Tool

Metalife Recognition Tool performs online analysis of any type of scientific text. It combines sophisticated linguistically motivated statistical methods to find biologically meaningful relationships between objects within text (e.g. the association between a given disease and known drugs).
Our application allows the researchers to find new information that is not explicitly contained in any of the documents.

Metalife High-Value Sequence Repository

Metalife High-Value Sequence Repository is a highly optimized and scalable system, designed to meet the need of enormous content management and knowledge based discovery models by the pharmaceutical industry. The repository itself has the purpose to serve as a knowledge based system for information retrieval and submission.

Metalife Gene Nominator

Metalife Gene Nominator is a supplement to a sequence repository, where selected entries can be further evaluated, ranked and filtered in the context of a given laboratory project. The application extends the abilities of the sequence repository for manual annotation and serves as a central repository for storing all kind of documents related to a given entry from the sequence repository.

Metalife Job Designer

Metalife Job Designer is a dynamic interface for building custom pipelines of algorithms. These pipelines are predefined workflows represented by connecting the inputs and outputs of more than 140 different bioinformatics algorithms. The application provides the ability to perform step-by-step investigations, automatic high-throughput annotation of sequences, export and storage of results and much more.

Metalife MetaText

Metalife MetaText is a text mining tool designed to cover different aspects of information extraction from biomedical literature coming from a variety of knowledge domains. Approximately 30 distinct ontology-based vocabularies are structured and available to provide genome, proteome and metabolome analysis, cell structure, functions and processes, chemical and biochemical mechanisms, as well as organisms' taxonomy.
