Pangea Unveils Updated Version Of Sequencing Project Management Tool


OAKLAND, Calif.--Pangea Systems announced recently the release of its GeneMill 2.0 software for processing and managing DNA sequences. GeneMill 2.0 provides project management functions and the integration of the Phred, Phrap, and cross-match programs for an automated extraction of sequence data to assist in analysis and research.

GeneMill 2.0 integrates the Phred and Phrap programs through a web interface, which allows researchers to process and assemble DNA sequence data. Quality assessment is automatically performed on individual bases, allowing researchers to determine the quality of an overall project. For an integrated management solution, the assembled contigs are stored in GeneMill's database and can be exported directly to GeneWorld, Pangea's sequence analysis and annotation software.

GeneMill lets lab managers and scientists throughout an organization visualize and manage sequencing workflow. The software creates a corporate information center by capturing all of the laboratory data in a relational database. GeneMill lets a user prioritize projects more effectively, make better-informed decisions, and promote higher levels of quality control, according to Pangea. From initial project work requests to archiving and reporting results, GeneMill simplifies the organization and documentation of laboratory information and activities, Pangea contended.
