The two companies plan to join their respective technologies in order to help clinicians better interpret genetic variant data.

The combined products will provide customers with a comprehensive solution for managing next-generation sequencing workflows in the lab.

Ranomics is building a business around providing functional data on variants of unknown significance, starting with BRCA1 mutations.

This week, Interactive Biosoftware released Alamut-HT 1.1, an upgraded version of its genomic variant annotation and interpretation software.

Cartagenia and Interactive Biosoftware have signed an agreement allowing Cartagenia to integrate IB's Alamut gene visualization software into its BenchLab, a web-based software tool for interpreting genomic variation in routine diagnostics.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Cartagenia and Interactive Biosoftware today said that they will integrate their data analysis tools for interpreting genomic variation in routine diagnostics.

Illumina has launched its RapidTrack Whole Genome Sequencing service, which uses the HiSeq 2500 sequencing instrument and the company's new iSAAC genome alignment software to sequence and align a whole human genome in five days.

Interactive Biosoftware has released a new version of its flagship Alamut mutation analysis software designed to identify variants in next-generation sequence data.

Interactive Biosoftware says its software is a cut above the rest because it goes beyond identifying mutations in sequences to providing interpretations of the consequences of genomic variations.

Researchers suggest that genetic variations could influence the side effects people experience when using synthetic cannabinoids, the International Business Times reports.

An analysis has examined the makeup of researchers on Twitter and what they share, Nature News reports.

At Stat News, Jim Kozubek argues that the Broad Institute is pushing the boundary of what a nonprofit is.
