Rancho to Provide Data Curation Services for IDBS' E-Workbook


NEWYORK (GenomeWeb)- Rancho Biosciences has signed an agreement with IDBS that allows the company provide manual data curation services for the IDBS E-Workbook products.

Mutual customers of both companies will have accees to the curated data and will be able to store and track it using the E-Workbook. They'll also be able to pull information from the workbook and curate it before performing additional analysis. "IDBS is in the business of storing, moving and analyzing data" while 'Rancho cleans and aligns that data so that our mutual customers can more easily query the valuable information they have" so it "[made] sense to partner" with them, Julie Bryant, CEO of Rancho BioSciences, said in a statement.

Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
