UniConnect Donates Lab Management Software to GW Comp Bio Institute

Premium

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Utah-based software firm UniConnect said this week that it will donate UniFlow, its laboratory process management software, to George Washington University's Computational Biology Institute (CBI).

UniConnect's UniFlow provides tools for researchers to manage complex lab processes and large quantites of omic data.

Keith Crandall, CBI's founding director, said in a statement that adding UniFlow to the lab will "enhance our ability to train students in informatics and 'big data' management, making them more productive and more employable upon graduation." He added that it will enhance "our ability to collaborate with other research partners in the area and around the world to develop novel capabilities and effectively compete for new grant opportunities."

"We look at this gift as the beginning of a mutually beneficial relationship with UNIConnect," Tom Russo, assistant vice president for research in GW’s Office of Industry and Corporate Research, said in a statement, one that "becomes the model for corporate and educational software strategic alignment."
