NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Center for Genome Resources is using an analytical database made by the UK bioinformatics firm Kognitio, NCGR said today.
Santa Fe, NM-based NCGR will use the company's WX2 system to support its genomic research data management capabilities.
"We realized that we needed a new database solution to increase the flexibility and the performance for our future plans," NCGR Program Leader Ernest Retzel said in a statement.
"The pace of data generation is exploding, and over the next twelve months we expect the amount of data that we need to analyze will expand at a rate of ten-fold or more," NCGR's Database Architect, Kathy Myers, added.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
