NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — GenoLogics yesterday said that the Windber Research Institute will use its data-management system to conduct translational medical research.
GenoLogics said that WRI requires “a scientific data-management system and LIMS solution that would tie together their research, and clinical/patient data from multiple science areas such as genomics, proteomics, and immunology.”
The company said that more than 20 users at Windber Research Institute, including scientists, bioinformatics, and “eventually” clinicians, are expected to access and use the GenoLogics system. 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
WRI, based in Windber, Pa., is a functional genomics and proteomics research facility funded by the US Department of Defense. It is trying to start a network of collaborative research institute in the Netherlands, UK, Germany, Greece, parts of Asia, and throughout North America.
