GATC Biotech to Distribute Integrated Genomics Genome Databases in Europe

NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (GenomeWeb News) - GATC Biotech has signed a distribution agreement for Integrated Genomics' genome databases, the company said last week.

 

Under the multi-year agreement, GATC, located in Constance, Germany, will distribute Integrated's Ergotm bioinformatics suite of curated microbial and eukaryotic genomes in Europe.

 

In addition, GATC and Chicago-based Integrated Genomics will "combine their market presentation in terms of sequencing and bioinformatics projects," according to GATC.
