International Research Group Taps Qlucore's Omics Explorer for Bowel Disease Studies


Qlucore said this week that the Health Sciences Research Institute of the Germans Trias i Pujol Foundation, or IGPT, has selected its Omics Explorer software to support research on various bowel diseases.

Specifically, IGPT will use the company's data analysis software to better understand the causes of inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and other diseases, Qlucore said.

Eli Pedrosa Tapias, a technical supervisor at IGPT, said in a statement that Qlucore’s software will help the team reach its goal of becoming a “research center of reference” by “making our research much more efficient, and by providing our researchers with valuable data that they can interpret very quickly.”
