Incogen Wins $100,000 SBIR I from NSF to Adapt Software for Classroom

NEW YORK, Feb. 9 (GenomeWeb News) - Incogen has won a $100,000 SBIR phase I grant from the National Science Foundation to adapt its bioinformatics software as a teaching tool, the company said Friday.

 

During a six-month project, the Williamsburg, Va.-based company will use its Visual Integrated Bioinformatics Environment software in bioinformatics classes at The College of William and Mary and plans to tailor the program for classroom use and launch it on a wider scale.

 

Incogen's CEO, Maciek Sasinowski, teaches a bioinformatics course at The College of William and Mary.
