Biobase, CLC Bio Strike Data Pact

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Biobase and CLC Bio will integrate their respective database and workbench software platforms for use in genomic data analysis, CLC Bio said today.

Under the partnership, the companies will integrate the Biobase Transfac database as a plug-in with CLC Bio's workbenches and enterprise platform. The companies plan to market the integrated systems, which combine algorithms with a collection of eukaryotic gene regulation data, to researchers conducting next-generation sequencing projects.

CLC Bio said it expects the solution to be ready for market in the spring of 2010.

Further terms of the alliance were not disclosed.
