Prague Biotech Institutes Using DNAStar's Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Two research institutes in Prague, Czech Republic, will use DNAStar’s software for sequence analysis under a multi-site license agreement, the Madison, Wis.-based company said today.
Under the agreement, two units of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic will access the Lasergene sequence analysis software for an unlimited number of users for a four-year period.
The agreement gives the Institute of Molecular Genetics and the Institute of Biotechnology access to the software, which offers a range of analysis tools for use in traditional and next-generation sequence analysis projects.
Financial terms of the agreements were not released.
