Research Discusses Significance of RexDB(R)-based Tools and How the Simons Simplex Collection and Simons Foundation Assisted Researchers
PHILADELPHIA, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometheus Research Informatics today was featured in multiple new presentations at the annual International Meeting for Autism (IMFAR), the leading conference on autism research.
The presentations at IMFAR detailed results relating to studies on autism symptoms, cognition, clinical phenotypes, genetics, treatment, and social function. Most cite work being done with data provided through SFARI Base, the Prometheus-built research informatics system. SFARI Base uses both HTSQL and RexDB® technologies to provide researchers access to data and biospecimens collected as part the Simons Foundation's unprecedented Autism Research Initiative.
"This published body of work now positions our Research Informatics tools, specifically RexDB®, as one of the leading informatics solutions used by autism researchers today," said Dr. Leon Rozenblit, Prometheus Research founder and president. "We're happy to play a small but important role in helping clinical researchers at leading institutions find the causes and ultimately the treatments for autism."
Prometheus Research Informatics and its RexDB® software product simplify development of custom informatics systems to access scientific data securely over the web, scales easily, and organizes both standard and experimental data generated by multiple disciplines.
The posters and papers, presented at the two-day conference in Philadelphia, offer a wide range of captured autism data, from bullying and problem behaviors to interpersonal distance and phenotypic profiles.
