Genedata, Insilico to Offer Integrated Platform for Industrial Biotech

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genedata and Insilico Biotechnology said today that they have integrated their software products to create an end-to-end bioinformatics platform for industrial biotechnology research.

Specifically, the integrated solution combines Genedata Selector, a software solution for genomic data analysis and management, with Insilico Discovery simulation software.

The combined solution will help customers "combine quantitative biotechnology with hypothesis generation with experimental validation," Insilico Biotechnology CEO Klaus Mauch said in a statement, as well as optimize bioprocesses and microbial strains used in areas such as feed and food additives, care specialties, and therapeutic precursors.

Once of those customers is SysEnCor, a German research consortium that plans to use the integrated offering to analyze the energy metabolism of Corynebacterium glutamicum — a key organism for bioprocessed amino acids used in food and feed production.
