Swedish Academic Consortium Picks Spotfire Software for Microarray Data

NEW YORK, Jan. 13 - Sweden's functional genomics consortium Swegene Microarray Resource Center has secured a license with Spotfire software, the company said today.


With the license, which provides access to Spotfire's DecisionSite for Functional Genomics, the Swedish researchers can access and analyze microarray and other gene-expression data.


The Swegene consortium includes Goteborg University, Lund University, and the Chalmers University of Technology, is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. Its core microarray facility, launched in 2001, offers Affymetrix chips and software.


Spotfire is based in Somerville, Mass., and has European headquarters in Goteborg.

Study Examines Insights Gained by Adjunct Trio RNA Sequencing in Complex Pediatric Disease Cases

Researchers in AJHG explore the diagnostic utility of adding parent-child RNA-seq to genome sequencing in dozens of families with complex, undiagnosed genetic disease.

Clinical Genomic Lab Survey Looks at Workforce Needs

Investigators use a survey approach in Genetics in Medicine Open to assess technologist applications, retention, and workforce gaps at molecular genetics and clinical cytogenetics labs in the US.

Study Considers Gene Regulatory Features Available by Sequence-Based Modeling

Investigators in Genome Biology set sequence-based models against observational and perturbation assay data, finding distal enhancer models lag behind promoter predictions.

Genetic Testing Approach Explores Origins of Blastocyst Aneuploidy

Investigators in AJHG distinguish between aneuploidy events related to meiotic missegregation in haploid cells and those involving post-zygotic mitotic errors and mosaicism.
