Cofactor, Intrepid Integrate Cow Genome Analysis Tools

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Cofactor Genomics and Intrepid Bioinformatics have partnered to integrate their offerings for analyzing cow genome data, St. Louis-based Cofactor said today.

Under the partnership, the companies have developed a genomic viewer designed to visualize data from bovine exome sequencing studies. Cofactor said it will offer the viewer and Intrepid's data-management system to customers of its bovine whole-exome capture product.

Cofactor said its whole-exome capture product enables cow researchers to selectively enrich, sequence, analyze, and detect variants in coding and regulatory regions. Intrepid Bioinformatics' SNP data service allows researchers to study their own data down to the sequence read while viewing polymorphisms, exons, introns, and allele frequencies.
