Ghent University Taps TimeLogic's Hardware to Support Plant Genomes Analysis

Premium

TimeLogic, a division of Active Motif, said this week that Ghent University has implemented the latest version of its J-Series Field Programmable Gate Array-based DeCypher system, adding to an earlier version of the infrastructure already installed at the institution.

Specifically, the Nucleotides to Networks project, one of five multidisciplinary research partnerships at the university, will use the new system to run bioinformatics pipelines for analyzing the functions of novel genes and proteins, according to TimeLogic.

Other recent customers of the company's hardware include the Center for Biotechnology at Bielefeld University.
