CLC Bio Signs $2M Software Agreement with University of Queensland

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Students in genetics courses at Australia's University of Queensland will use CLC Bio's software through a four-year agreement worth over $2 million, the company said today.

Under the agreement, each student enrolled in the university's genetics courses will have access to a copy of the company's CLC Main Workbench, which is used for DNA, RNA, and protein sequence analysis, as well as gene expression analysis and data management.

Michael Heltzen, CLC Bio's director of partner sales, said in a statement that teaching students how to use and apply bioinformatics in their research enables them to "focus on what's biologically relevant, instead of wasting time trying to use programming languages."
