Genomatix Joins Illumina-Connect Program

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genomatix Software said today that it has joined the Illumina-Connect program, an Illumina initiative to work with hardware and software firms to develop new tools and applications for genomic data generated by Illumina's platforms.

Munich, Germany-based Genomatix sells the Genomatic Mining Station and Genomatix Genome Analyzer for analyzing next-generation sequencing data.

"Working with Illumina-generated NGS data has helped us greatly in our ongoing effort to refine and further expand our analysis capabilities in this very demanding market," said Peter Grant, CEO of Genomatix Software's US operations in Ann Arbor, Mich. "Being a part of the Illumina-Connect program should help us to better focus those efforts as well as help us keep up with the rapidly expanding portfolio of Illumina NGS applications."
