TCAG and HP to Collaborate on Improving Genomics Technologies

NEW YORK, April 1 (GenomeWeb News) - The Center for the Advancement of Genomics and HP said yesterday they will collaborate on improving technology for genome sequencing.


Under the agreement, HP will provide TCAG with technology to support its IT infrastructure. In addition, engineers and researchers from HP Cambridge Research Lab will contribute to the collaboration, and HP Services will provide technical support.


Initially, TCAG and HP plan to create a "genome-sequencing pipeline" based on TCAG software and HP hardware, reduce the cost and increase the throughput of genome sequencing and proteomics techniques, and collaborate with other research organizations to establish standards for data and tools and to develop open source technologies.
