GraphOn Software Used for Canada Genome Project, Beta Tests New Products



AMPBELL, Calif.--GraphOn announced recently that it is providing the National Research Council of Canada with its Go-Joe connectivity software to enable researchers around the world to access applications and databases at the Canadian Bioinformatics Resource over the internet and Canada’s Canarie Optical IP advanced network, CAnet 3.

Terry Dalton, IT/NOC manager for the council’s Institute for Marine Biosciences which houses the bioinformatics resource group’s main servers, said, "We have found it to be a very effective way for Windows-based PCs to access highly sophisticated number crunching and graphics-intensive applications and data over any kind of internet connection." The council created the bioinformatics resource to more efficiently carry out its internal genomics research programs and to provide bioinformatics services to researchers throughout Canada.

Separately, GraphOn announced that it will release Unix and Linux beta versions of its web-enabling software, Bridges, designed to provide fast access to applications from any desktop machine and connection without requiring additional hardware or modification of software applications, said the company.
