Integrated Genomics, Tsunamic to Develop Linux Clusters for Big Genome Annotation Research

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Integrated Genomics will apply its ERGO software with Tsunamic Technologies’ computing services to develop Linux clusters for “large-scale, high throughput genome annotation and comparative genomics” projects, the companies said yesterday.
IG’s ERGO software is designed for gene visualization, gene expression data analysis, phylogeny, and identifying natural gene fusions, among other things, IG said.  
Tsunamic, based in Orlando, Fla., offers pay-as-you-go cluster computing services through the Internet on an outsource basis.
John Elling, president of IG, said the partnership will allow IG researchers to “focus on refining and using our tools for genomic analysis rather than maintaining a computer cluster.”
Financial terms of the deal were not released.
