RefSeq Release 27, Mettler Toledo, Applied Biosystems

RefSeq Release 27 from NCBI’s RefSeq is now available by anonymous FTP here.
This full release incorporates genomic, transcript, and protein data available as of January 6, 2008 and includes 7,025,715 records,
4,426,609 proteins, and sequences from 4,926 different organisms.

Mettler Toledo and Applied Biosystems this week announced an integrated solution for easing workflow and transferring of information in laboratories across scientific disciplines, including life science, chemistry, food, and petrochemical industries.
The companies’ combined solution has been designed to offer researchers in such fields the means to exchange data between precision instruments and laboratory information management systems, ABI said in a statement.
This solution integrates ABI’s SQLLIMS laboratory information management system with Mettler Toledo’s' LabX data management software. Applied Biosystems will sell, install, and maintain SQLLIMS systems and implement the integration of LabX software.
The combined SQLLIMS and LabX package also provides a validated system that eliminates the need to check each process for accuracy, according to ABI.
