Pangea Releases Latest Version Of GeneWorld


OAKLAND, Calif.--Pangea Systems has released GeneWorld 3.5, an upgraded version of its sequence analysis and annotation software package. New features will further enable researchers to accelerate gene discovery and "take the next step towards elucidating a gene's function," the company claimed.

Using Pangea's Unified Life Science Environment application programming interface, the company said its customers can extend GeneWorld to operate with existing bioinformatics systems and solutions developed in-house or purchased from third-party vendors.
