Belgium's VIB to Use CLC Bio Workbench for Sequence Data Analysis

Premium

CLC Bio said this week that the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, or VIB, has signed a site license agreement for the company's sequence analysis software, CLC DNA Workbench.

Under the terms of the license, researchers in four VIB-associated academic institutions — Ghent University, the Catholic University of Leuven, the University of Antwerp, and the Free University of Brussels — will use the software to analyze data generated by their biomolecular research projects, CLC Bio said.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
