Syngenta Installs Geospiza s Sequencing Software at Second Site

NEW YORK, April 15 (GenomeWeb News) - Syngenta has installed Geospiza's DNA sequence analysis enterprise software at a second research site, Geospiza said yesterday.


Syngenta first started using Geospiza's Finch Sequencing Center system at its Jealott's Hill International Research Center in the UK in 2002. It has now installed a similar system at its Research Triangle Park facility in North Carolina.


Geospiza is based in Seattle. The company's Finch Sequencing Center helps manage DNA sequencing data, data analysis, and laboratory workflow.
