NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Beijing Genomics Institute has licensed CLC bio’s sequencing analysis and visualization software, CLC bio said today.
The site license agreement for CLC bio’s Genomics Workbench allows all BGI researchers to use the software in all of its sites, inside and outside of China.
The Aarhus, Denmark-based company said BGI will use the software in its daily research, which includes projects such as the Giant Panda Genome Project and the 1000 Genomes Project.
BGI has 17 Illumina Genome Analyzers, two ABI SOLiD sequencers, and three Roche 454 sequencers in its next-generation sequencing tool shed.
CLC said the Workbench utilizes paired end data and supports tasks including reference assembly, de novo assembly, SNP detection, multiplexing, and high-throughput trimming.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
