German Environmental Health Center Buys Partek's Genomics Suite

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A German government agency has purchased Partek Genomics’ software to analyze data from studies of cancer, heart disease, and lung disease, Partek said today.
 
The National Research Center for Environment and Health, or GSF, will use Partek’s Genomics Suite with Affymetrix GeneChip data at its facility in Neuherberg.
 
GSF studies disease by focusing on genetic dispositions, environmental factors, and biological systems, Partek said.
 
Partek’s software suite analyzes gene expression, exon expression, chromosomal copy number, promoter tiling arrays, and SNP arrays.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
