EMBL Purchases Genomatix's Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The European Molecular Biology Laboratory has installed genomics data mining and analysis tools from Genomatix Software in its Genomics Core Facility, the company said today.

The Munich-based company said that EMBL has purchased the company's Mining Station, which provides SNP detection and genotyping, copy number analysis, and small RNA analysis, and the Genome Analyzer, which conducts deep biological analysis of data from the GMS. Together, the systems offer an integrated solution for analyzing raw next-generation sequencing data.

EMBL's GeneCore is focused on studying the benefits and utilization of new technologies developed at EMBL, and on improving the quality, efficiency, and relevance of lab data.

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
