Malaysian Genome Resource Center, Regional University Pen Bioinformatics-Training Alliance

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Malaysian Genome Resource Center and a state-owned university in the region will form a bioinformatics research initiative aimed at enhancing the school’s bioinformatics programs, the MGRC said today.
Under the collaboration, the MGRC will work with Selangor-based Unisel so that its SynaBASE software can support the school’s Bachelor of Bioinformatics platform.
MGRC said it expects the collaboration to offer Unisel students “a clearer appreciation” of bioinformatics trends from “an industry perspective.”
The SynaBASE software identifies for “patterns in genomic data and stores them into a network structure, the MGRC said.
