Glaxo Wellcome Is First Customer for Genomica's Gene Discovery Software


BOULDER, Colo.--Genomica announced that it has licensed its Discovery Manager Product Suite to Glaxo Wellcome. The bioinformatics software supports a range of research activities and provides data that can be used by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

The software offers visualization and analysis tools, project management tools, and a comprehensive database of genetic information collected from the major international genome centers. Discovery Manager integrates the collected data through a process of semantic normalization which merges data that is represented around the world in a variety of ways into a common semantic model.

The software also brings comprehensive, integrated bioinformatics tools to the desktop and enables scientists to model the complex relationships among sets of genetic information, Genomica claimed. Discovery Manager maintains information on every aspect of the gene discovery process, from the clinical genetics work-up, to epidemiology, to genetic analysis, to molecular biology (both physical mapping and sequence analysis), to biochemistry.
