UW to Use GenoLogics Geneus for Next-Gen Sequencing

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Washington will use GenoLogics' lab information and genomics data management system in its next-generation sequencing center, which the school is planning to scale up in the coming months, GenoLogics said today.

The school's Genome Sciences Genomics Resource Center has already installed the Geneus system, and it is currently increasing its sequencing capabilities to include a total of 18 Illumina Genome Analyzers, GenoLogics said.

The Victoria, British Columbia-based company said that it is working closely with UW's bioinformatics team to enable its software users with programming interfaces to help it accelerate the implementation and adoption timeline.

The company said that the Geneus software supports workflows across multiple technology platforms including next-gen sequencing.

Financial and other details of the agreement were not released.
