Pangea Names Phil Green to Scientific Advisory Board


OAKLAND, Calif.--Bioinformatics software company Pangea Systems here has named University of Washington bioinformatics expert Phil Green to its Scientific Advisory Board. Green is an associate professor of molecular biotechnology and helps direct the university's Genome Sequencing Center.

Among the software Green has developed are PHRED, PHRAP, and CONSED for large-scale DNA sequencing; Genefinder, for gene identification; CRIMAP for linkage mapping; and SEGMAP for physical mapping of DNA. He joins fellow Pangea board members Doug Brutlag, Fred Cohen, and Barry Honig. Pangea CEO Joel Bellenson called Green "a vital part of the future of Pangea and bioinformatics in general."
