Monash University to Use DNAStar's Lasergene Software for Genomic Data Analysis


DNAStar has added Monash University to its roster of customers for its Lasergene software.

The Madison, Wis.-based company said this week that that the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, which is located at the university, has selected Lasergene to analyze genomic sequence data for its research projects.

ARMI said in a statement that it chose DNAStar's software because its scientists "are quite familiar with it and comfortable with it for meeting their DNA, RNA, and protein sequence analysis needs."

The parties aren't disclosing the financial details of the arrangement.

MU is the second academic institution this month to choose DNAStar's products for sequence data analysis. Several weeks ago, the company said that the University of Texas Medical Branch, the healthcare arm of the University of Texas System, purchased licenses for both Lasergene and ArrayStar for use in clinical research applications (BI 11/11/2011).
