NEW YORK, July 10 - TurboGenomics and Entropia will collaborate to deliver high-performance sequence comparison analysis on large enterprise networks, the companies said Tuesday.

Entropia, of San Diego, will combine its PC-based distributed computer platform with New Haven-based TurboGenomics' TurboBLAST sequence comparison tool. The companies anticipate the product will be available by the third quarter of 2001.

"Working with Entropia opens the doors to using TurboBLAST in even more computing environments, particularly in large enterprise networks," Gregory Gardiner, CEO of TurboGenomics, said in a statement. "The Entropia platform's scalability, careful management of CPU and disk usage, and security features are all tailored specifically for the corporate enterprise environment."
