Researchers can compare, mine, and manage their next-generation sequence data (NGS), annotations, and findings across billions of reads -- from a simple web browser.
San Diego, CA (Vocus) March 18, 2010
GenomeQuest, the global leader in sequence data management (SDM), today begins the "West Coast Swing" of its SDM Luncheon Tour.
In these educational luncheons for life science researchers and developers, Richard Resnick, the company vice president of software, is showcasing:
- How researchers can compare, mine, and manage their next-generation sequence data (NGS), annotations, and findings across billions of reads -- from a simple web browser.
- How developers can customize 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.
- How organizations can scale their SDM to NGS volumes and to 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, MA. The West Coast luncheons follow last week's announcement of the GenomeQuest API (accessing the GQ Engine) for bioinformatics developers and computational scientists.
Upcoming stops include:
- The XGEN Congress in San Diego today, with over 350 attendees expected
- The ABRF Conference in Sacramento on March 23
Register for the upcoming luncheon at the ABRF conference at http://www.genomequest.com/ABRFluncheon or request a luncheon for your city or organization at http://www.genomequest.com/APIworkshop. The full API announcement can be found at http://www.genomequest.com/GenomeQuest-opens-API-for-SDM.xhtml.
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.
