Premium

DNAStar said this week that Wageningen University and Research Centers has signed a site license agreement for the company's Lasergene software.

The financial terms of the licensing arrangement were not disclosed.

Specifically, researchers at the Dutch university's Central Veterinary Institute will use the software suite to analyze their next-generation DNA and RNA sequence data, DNAStar said.

WUR is the latest academic institution to license DNAStar's Lasergene for its genomic analysis needs.

Other recent customers of the company's merchandise include the University of Texas (BI 11/11/2011), Monash University (BI 12/2/2011), and ETH Zurich (BI 12/16/2011), all of whom licensed the software late last year.
