Golden Helix and Progeny Software to Integrate Genetic Data-Handling Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Golden Helix and Progeny Software said today that they will partner to develop an integrated software platform for analyzing, storing, and managing genotype and copy number variation data.
The companies will integrate Progeny’s LAB data management platform and Golden Helix’s SNP & Variation Suite. The combined products will allow users to store, manage, and analyze data with one interface.
"The growing size and complexity of genetic studies continues to create computational challenges in terms of storing and analyzing data,” Golden Helix CEO Christophe Lambert said in a statement. “Yet, the most arduous process is often the constant formatting, reformatting, and transfer of data among packages.”
As part of the agreement, Golden Helix has extended an exclusive distribution agreement with Progeny Europe covering Western Europe.
