DNAStar Joins BioIT Alliance

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Life sciences software developer DNAStar said today that it has joined the BioIT Alliance, the Microsoft-led effort to develop biomedical software and technologies that will enable personalized medicine.

DNAStar makes the Lasergene sequence analysis software suite, the SeqMan NGen for next-generation sequencing data, the GeneVision data visualization software, and the ArrayStar microarray and RNA-Seq gene expression software.

"As the next-generation DNA sequencing revolution has expanded scientists' thinking about what is possible, now is the time to aggressively move forward to solve the most important challenges we face in effectively processing, analyzing, and interpreting the data generated by these new and emerging technologies," DNAStar's GM Tom Schwei said in a statement.
