CLC Bio, SD Genomics, Beijing Genomics Partner on Bioinformatics Development

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - CLC Bio said today that it has formed a partnership with the Beijing Genomics Institute and SD Genomics, a genomics service provider based in Aarhus, Denmark, to collaborate on the development of bioinformatics and genomics tools and plug-ins for use with CLC Bio’s bioinformatics platform.
 
CLC Bio said the companies will develop tools to manage and interpret data being generated by genomics research in biotech and pharmaceutical companies and in academic research. 
 
In particular, CLC Bio cited “the vast volume of data” from new sequencing technologies as driving an “urgent need for new and innovative IT solutions for handling and interpreting such data in an efficient and value adding way.”
 
The collaborators will develop plug-ins for use with CLC Bio’s Workbench platform, and will also integrate several tools from the Beijing Genomics Institute with CLC Bio’s software.
 
SD Genomics CEO Jens Sundbye said the partnership will benefit its pharmaceutical company clients by removing “essential barriers in their workflow.”
