Partek Makes Genomic Suite GeneChip-Compatible for SNP Association Studies

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Statistical analysis software company Partek has made its Genomics Suite compatible with the Affymetrix GeneChip platform for SNP association studies, the company said late last week.
 
Partek’s Genomics Suite imports, analyzes, and visualizes genomic data, and supports single and multiple SNP association tests on allele, genotype and on dominant/recessive models the company said.
 
The St Louis-based company said that Partek GS is now the “first commercially available software tool” to achieve GeneChip-compatible status for gene expression, exon expression, chromosomal copy number analysis, regulation analysis, and SNP analysis.
