NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Danish firm CLC bio and Microsoft announced today that they will integrate CLC bio’s bioinformatics products with Microsoft’s software platform.
The firms said that the CLC Bioinformatics Database already supports the Microsoft SQL Server, Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003, and Windows HPC Server 2008. Both firms are members of the Bio IT Alliance, an effort launched by Microsoft in 2006 to improve data management in the life science research field.
“With our support for Microsoft’s server solutions, the first step in the process has already been taken,” said Jan Lomholdt, vice president of CLC bio, in a statement. “The second step is to further advance our collaboration in areas such as Next generation Sequencing and high-performance computing, which ultimately can help realize the potential of personalized medicine.”
