Downloads and Upgrades: Genedata Biologics 3.0, UCSC Genome Browser, and more.


Genedata has released Genedata Biologics 3.0, a new version of its enterprise solution for biologics research and development.

According to its developers, the new release standardizes antibody screening, protein engineering, and protein production processes. It includes improvements to its data management and access control framework, a flexible reporting engine, extended molecule processing support, and updated tools for managing antigens among other changes.

The University of Santa Cruz Genome Browser group has released a new browser for the olive baboon, Papio anubis.

The whole-genome shotgun assembly was provided by the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center. There are 72,500 scaffolds with a total size of 2,948,380,710 bases.

ChemAxon said this week that it has deposited crowd-sourced chemical structures gathered through its public website,, into the Pubchem repository.

The company has also includes links to structure-based data for each structure.

DNA Software has launched qPCR CopyCount, a cloud-based service based on the company’s proprietary technology that derives absolute DNA quantification from quantitative PCR sample data.
