NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pacific Biosciences today said that it has partnered with Cycle Computing to optimize its PacBio RS Single-Molecule Real-Time Analysis software for the cloud.

"The life science market seems to be adopting the cloud at a much faster rate than other industries, and I think part of that is due to the fact that large pharma in particular is comfortable with outsourcing everything they do that is not part of their core business," said Cycle Computing's CEO.

Researchers have developed a robotic lab assistant, the Verge reports.
