CLC Bio, World Fusion Create Sequencing Analysis Center

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Japanese informatics management firm World Fusion today announced it has created a sequence analysis service center with a bioinformatics infrastructure based on CLC Bio's enterprise platform for high-throughput sequencing data analysis.

CLC Bio's platform will be coupled with World Fusion's Life Science Knowledge Bank database system. The LSKB database contains annotated information about genes, proteins, compounds, and their structures and literature information.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

World Fusion is now also CLC Bio's integration partner in Japan and will assist with the bioinformatics company expansion into that country. In 2009, CLC Bio created a subsidiary in Japan to service the market.

In a statement today, David Leangen, CEO of CLC Bio Japan, said the partnership with World Fusion will help establish CLC Bio "as the leading provider of high-throughput sequencing data analysis software in Japan."
