New Product Watch: Dec 9, 2008

InfoQuant last week launched oneClickCGH and CGH Fusion version 5.0. The London-based firm's new software packages allow the integration of loss-of-heterozygosity and copy number data with data from SNP arrays.
Specifically, oneClickCGH 5.0 provides integrated genome-wide CNV frequencies, the construction of interactive custom CNV tracks, gene significance analysis, integrated Progenetix CGH data, and allele-specific plots for LOH detection.
CGH Fusion 5.0 enables batch-mode copy number and LOH detection, simultaneous visualization of multiple samples, joint log-ratio and allele-specific plots, comprehensive aberration report formats, and interactive cross-sample alteration frequency profiles.
