Wiley, LabBook Partner on Life Science Informatics Solutions

Publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ( and LabBook, Inc. (, a life sciences informatics company, have announced an alliance to deliver an end-to-end solution enabling software and scientific content that will provide life science researchers with flexible access to essential information in a single, unified desktop environment. The alliance brings together LabBook's desktop data-integration and visualization software with the content in Wiley InterScience (, a Web-based offering of more than 300 scientific, technical, and medical journals and major reference works—including Wiley's Current Protocols laboratory manuals. According to the announcement, LabBook's enabling software maximizes the value of such scientific content for the end-user by delivering it as "live" reusable documents in a highly visual and interactive discovery environment integrated with bioinformatic data.

"Integration of targeted information and data is a fundamental step in the drug discovery process, and we believe the bundling of LabBook's innovative technology with Wiley's premier research content and laboratory protocols will increase the efficiencies of this process for the life science researcher," said Shawn J. Green, LabBook's CEO.

The Wiley/LabBook alliance will promote the use of open standards and the development of standards-based applications to help fuel ongoing innovations in the life sciences. LabBook has combined Bioinformatics Sequence Markup Language (BSML), an open and widely accepted eXtensible Markup Language (XML) standard for bioinformatics, with Genomic XML Browser and XML converters to enable the dynamic integration and annotation of diverse databases.
