Johns Hopkins Selects Sapio's LIMS for Epigenetic Research


Sapio Sciences said this week that the Epigenetics Center of the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences at Johns Hopkins University has licensed its Exemplar Laboratory Information Management System and Electronic Lab Notebook software.

The center will use the Exemplar platform to manage lab samples and to handle Illumina HiSeq and Illumina Infinium platform workflows, Sapio said.

The Johns Hopkins center explores the epigenetic basis of normal development and disease and its researchers are working on several genomics, biostatistical, and biochemical methods for that purpose.

Baltimore, Md.-based Sapio said the researchers chose Exemplar because of its ability to manage data from multiple domains and to implement workflows and processes quickly.

Exemplar combines lab information management and electronic lab notebook capabilities, cheminformatics, and data-management tools in a single framework.
