German Ag-Bio Firm Extends License for Biomax Software


NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Biomax Informatics said this week that KWS SAAT, a German plant breeding company, has extended an existing software license agreement for Biomax's Pedant-Pro Sequence Analysis suite.

Biomax's software has supported the ag-bio firm's activities around functional and structural annotation of plant and fungal-based genomic and cDNA sequences for several years and is a "central component" of its bioinformatics platform, according to Andreas Menze, KWS' head of bioinformatics. "In addition to the Pedant-Pro system’s broad range of functionality and diverse integrated databases, the software has a very user-friendly GUI, which allows even staff with little IT experience to use the system efficiently," he said in a statement.

Financial and other terms of the renewed agreement were not disclosed.
