Our free Basic Account allow researchers to explore and work in state-of-the-art NGS sequence management and mining tools free of charge.
Providence, RI (Vocus) September 22, 2009
GenomeQuest, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of a free Basic Account to researchers in genomics moving to next generation sequencing (NGS).
The GenomeQuest 6.0Beta sequence data management (SDM) product allows researchers to manage, mine, and share their NGS sequence data and results - all from a web-browser and while accessing the world's largest collection of sequence reference databases. Bioinformatics and IT managers can customize discovery workflows and unify their sequence data environment and scale to broad utilization of NGS.
The free Basic Account gives researchers access to all GenomeQuest 6.0Beta functionality and complete results of Sanger sequence runs and a full sampling of NGS run results. GenomeQuest CEO Ron Ranauro comments, "With its fundamental reduction in sequencing costs, NGS monumentally expands the domain of problems that can be solved in sequencing. As leaders in SDM, we feel it's our responsibility to introduce a new population of researchers to NGS discovery tools as fast as possible." He concludes, "Our free Basic Account allow researchers to explore and work in state-of-the-art NGS sequence management and mining tools free of charge."
Researchers can immediately experience GenomeQuest 6.0Beta online at http://www.genomequest.com. There is no obligation, no credit card required, and no software to install. The site includes a self-guided tour, online help/chat, and sample sequence databases. A silver account from GenomeQuest gives access to all results of NGS runs and is available for annual subscription starting at $1500 (US).
In related news, GenomeQuest announced the appointment of Mark Boguski, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical School, to its panel of science advisors. Said Boguski, "I'm very pleased to join the GenomeQuest team - SDM is certainly critical to and an enabler of the transformation of life sciences. If NGS technology is like the original IBM PC, GenomeQuest has the potential to become the standard operating system all the way through to precision diagnostics in a patient care environment."
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 use GenomeQuest for mission-critical work, including 18 of the top 20 pharmaceuticals.
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.
