Metabolon Debuts New Client Portal at Bio-IT World Expo

Metabolon, Inc., a leader in metabolomics-driven biomarker discovery, announced today the debut and impending launch of MetaboLync, the company’s innovative product offering which allows its clients to share, visualize, and explore metabolomics study results as a client directs. The company will unveil the capabilities of this new cloud-based software solution at the 2014 BIO-IT World Expo in Boston, Massachusetts on April 30th. Corey DeHaven, Metabolon’s VP of Information Systems, is the visionary architect of the company’s metabolomics data processing, analysis and storage systems. The company will exhibit, and Corey will provide, an introduction to the portal, including a demonstration of its capabilities, in an oral presentation within the Harnessing Data & Standards session.

“The MetaboLync client portal is our first informatics solution available to external users and further exemplifies our leadership position in metabolomics research and diagnostics. Extracting functional results from the information-rich metabolomics data stream is key to advancing our and our clients’ research. This portal will empower users to more effectively visualize and navigate thru their own results interactively,” commented Metabolon’s President and CEO, John Ryals.

Informatics solutions have played an active and critical role in building Metabolon’s leading biomarker discovery and metabolomics profiling platforms, DiscoveryHD4™ and TrueMass™. Metabolomics experiments generate a large amount of data, including both named and unnamed metabolites, group statistical analysis, and biological pathway annotations. Data visualization and analytical tools are required to aid in understanding the data, including relationships among detected metabolites and their effects on the underlying biology. MetaboLync leverages cloud-based resources and web service application program interfaces (APIs) to enable these functions. Equally important, this portal solution will enable Metabolon’s clients to directly access their metabolomics study results as well as final reports interpreted by our biochemists that detail the biological significance of those results. We expect MetaboLync portal access will be available to clients for active research studies on May 15th when the company plans to migrate to a new website platform.

About Metabolon

Metabolon is a world-leading, commercial-stage metabolomics company. Metabolomics is a rapidly evolving field of biochemical research and discovery focused on the measurement of small molecules involved in metabolism. Metabolon’s proprietary metabolomics technology maps these small molecule pathways to identify diseases, discover biomarkers, and better understand complex biological processes. Metabolon is pioneering the emerging field of global biochemical pathway analysis for biomarker discovery and the development of innovative diagnostic tests. The company’s Metabolytics business uses its proprietary metabolomics technology to conduct sponsored studies for life sciences researchers in industry and academia, which provide insight into complex biochemical processes. Data from these studies are used to populate Metabolon’s large and growing metabolomic information and pathway knowledge databases, which generate new product ideas for the company’s expanding Diagnostics business. Through the complementary interplay of its Metabolytics and Diagnostics businesses, Metabolon has been able to develop and launch three innovative, non-invasive, and cost-effective diagnostic tests designed to address the large and underserved markets for urological cancers and obesity-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes . Metabolon’s commercialized diagnostic tests and advancing product pipeline have the potential to provide physicians with better and more clinically actionable results in the detection, intervention, and prevention of urological cancers and obesity-related diseases than is currently available with existing diagnostic tests.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
