Westborough, MA (Vocus) April 19, 2010
GenomeQuest, the global leader in sequence data management (SDM), today announced an East Coast arc to its SDM Luncheon Tour, with a stop Princeton, N.J., on May 19, at the Courtyard by Marriott Princeton Hotel. The Princeton seminar continues the educational series, during which life science researchers and developers learn about the new GenomeQuest API, scaling to next-generation sequencing, and cloud-sharing of results. Richard Resnick, the company vice president of software, leads the seminar that showcases how:
- Researchers can compare, mine, and manage their next-generation sequence data (NGS), annotations, and findings across billions of reads -- from an ordinary Web browser.
- Developers can customize their SDM with powerful application programming interfaces (APIs) to support all research/clinical workflows and consolidate their bioinformatic support across users, instruments, tools, databases, projects, and organizations.
- Organizations can scale their SDM to NGS volumes and secure cloud-sharing of sequence data and results.
Major pharmas, core labs, medical institutions, large academic institutions, and biotech startups were all well represented at the kickoff luncheon in Cambridge, Mass., and most recently in an audience of more than 250 at Cambridge Healthtech Institutes X Gen Congress in San Diego, as well as the ABRF Conference in Sacramento. The tour follows the recent announcement of the GenomeQuest API (accessing the GQ Engine) for bioinformatics developers and computational scientists.

GenomeQuest, the leader in sequence data management (SDM), helps genomic researchers and their organizations make great discoveries far faster. Over 160 leading life science companies, including 17 of the top 20 pharmaceuticals, use GenomeQuest for mission-critical work.
Using GenomeQuest, organizations improve the performance of their discovery process and broadly prepare for next-generation sequencing (NGS). Researchers perform discoveries, manage and share sequence data, and access the world's largest collection of reference databases from a Web browser and personalized dashboard. Bioinformatics managers customize discovery workflows and unify their sequence data environment using the open platform. IT and business managers efficiently scale to broad utilization of next-generation sequencing in their discovery operations using the GQ Engine.
