Scottish Genomics Lab to Use GenoLogics' Geneus, Proteus Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — A genomics facility in Scotland will use GenoLogics’ Geneus and Proteus software for its genomics and proteomics research, GenoLogics said yesterday.
The products will be used at the University of Glasgow’s Sir Henry Wellcome Functional Genomics Facility and the RASOR Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration, an initiative involving several British universities.
Andrew Pitt, director at SHWFGF, said he is “convinced that … software and database informatics technology complement and accelerate the use of proteomics and genomics instrumentation and technologies in order to make research advances.”
He added that hi facility will use this software to integrate instruments, which will free researchers to avoid spending time on data management issues.
Financial terms of the deal were not released.
