Hyseq Launches Website, GeneSolutions.com, for Biomedical Researchers

Premium

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--Hyseq has launched GeneSolutions.com, a new website to provide genomic resources to pharmaceutical and biomedical researchers. The web site makes gene sequences and related data available to all researchers, for purchase on an item-by-item basis, even by credit card. By not charging subscription fees, the company hopes to capture a broader segment of the genomic data market, which it said is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues per year. GeneSolutions.com will offer sequence information, homology data and SNPs, and expression data. Hyseq is transferring information and data to GeneSolutions, its wholly owned subsidiary, from more than 12 million DNA samples that it has analyzed for its own use.
