Compugen Sells Two More Bioinformatics Platforms to Monsanto

Premium

WOBURN, Mass.--Israeli bioinformatics company Compugen, whose worldwide sales office is based here, has installed two additional high-throughput sequence analysis and bioinformatics platforms for Monsanto. Two BioXL/P-12 accelerators and associated GenCore and GenWeb software components will allow Monsanto to "add similarity annotation to genetic sequence data in an accurate and facile manner," according to Harry Harlow, Monsanto's director of bioinformatics.
