NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genedata today announced its participation in an industry-led consortium to develop a high-throughput phenotype-genotype platform for the identification of complex genetic effects.
As part of its participation, the Genedata Selector software system will be used for the analysis and management of the biologically relevant production phenotype strains and processes.
The project, called the Integrated Phenotype-Genotype project, is integrating high-throughput phenotyping and genotyping platforms with the resulting platform based on Genedata Selector, which supports industrial biotechnology strain optimization and next-generation sequencing technologies.
"The platform uses parallelized, multiplexed phenotype assays to support the systematic processing, storage, and mining of large volumes of data," Genedata said, adding that the main applications for the platform are in industrial biotech strain and process development.
IPG is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Members of IPG, which include Evonik Industries, GATC, and the Bielefeld University Center of Biotechnology, are contributing intellectual property and technologies to the development of the platform.
