Geospiza Software Tailored for Illumina's Genome Analyzer

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Seattle-based genetic analysis software maker Geospiza said today that its software can be used with Illumina’s Genome Analyzer for data integration and analysis.
 
By joining the Illumina Connect program, Geospiza has shown that its FinchLab Next Gen Edition workflow software can work with Illumina analyzers to track samples, review data, and characterize datasets, while helping researchers streamline digital gene expression experiments from sample to result.
 
Illumina Senior Product Manager of Informatics Omoshile Clement said in a statement that Geospiza’s software is tailored to work with the Genome Analyzer, and that it can help “accelerate research and discovery.”
