AB Enzymes Taps Genedata’s Software for Genome Data Management


Genedata said this week that AB Enzymes has licensed its Genedata Selector software to manage genomic data from strains of its production-relevant organisms.

Genedata Selector streamlines strain optimization and selection using automated strain comparison algorithms. The solution will serve as centralized data management system that connects AB Enzymes’ global research and development operations.

Jari Vehmaanperä, AB Enzymes’ global R&D director, said in a statement that his firm tapped Genedata Selector because it met its need for a solution that could integrate its genomics data management and data analysis processes, as well as “help us better understand underlying genotype-phenotype relationships.”

The financial details of the licensing agreement were not disclosed.
