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.

Suicidal Ideation-Linked Loci Identified Using Million Veteran Program Data

Researchers in PLOS Genetics identify risk variants within and across ancestry groups with a genome-wide association study involving veterans with or without a history of suicidal ideation.

Algorithm Teases Out Genetic Ancestry in Individuals at Biobank Scale

Researchers develop an algorithm known as Rye to tease apart ancestry fractions in admixed individuals at a biobank-scale, applying it to 488,221 UK Biobank participants in Nucleic Acids Research.

Multi-Ancestry Analysis Highlights Comparable Common Variants at Complex Trait-Linked Loci

Researchers in Nature Genetics examine common variants implicated in more than three dozen conditions, estimating genetic effect similarities across ancestry tracts in admixed individuals.
