Genomica Plans Update To Discovery Manager


BOULDER, Colo.--Genomica, a gene discovery and drug development bioinformatics tools company here, has announced plans to release a new version of its Discovery Manager software next month. The existing product includes visualization and analysis tools and includes a genetics database collected from numerous sources and integrated through semantic normalization, a process that merges diversely represented data into a common model to allow researchers to exploit complex relationships among sets of genetic information.

New features of the upcoming Version 2.1.0 include a marker manager to allow users to generate graphs and reports comparing the frequency of genetic markers of interest in different populations and subject clusters; a conditional pipeline for sequence analysis that allows high-throughput screening of multiple DNA sequences against a large selection of user-specified databases through complex decision-tree pipelines; an advanced query tool for highly complex queries using any type of data within the system; and enhanced inheritance-checking tools for internal and advanced third-party inheritance-checking programs.
