BioDiscovery Integrates Nexus CGH Software with Illumina's BeadStudio

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - BioDiscovery said this week that it has integrated its Nexus CGH copy number analysis software with Illumina’s BeadStudio software.
 
BioDiscovery said it collaborated with Illumina under the Illumina Connect bioinformatics initiative to create an interface that will allow BeadStudio customers to process their data in Nexus CGH, a platform-independent software package for identifying regions of chromosomal gain and loss in a population.
 
Illumina launched the Illumina Connect program in May. The program was established to give customers access to third-party bioinformatics software for processing Illumina array data.
