Dotmatics' Vortex for Bioinformatics
Dotmatics has launched Vortex for Bioinformatics, a new software solution that helps scientists analyze and visualize their data to make better informed decisions. According to its developers, the software can accept whole genome, antibody, protein and peptide data. Once users upload bioinformatics files into the system, Vortex displays the sequences in a variety of formats and offers access to algorithms for sequence alignment, cross-alignment, clustering, and search. The software is able to automatically select the correct analysis method based on the number and type of sequences being analyzed so that non-bioinformaticians can get results without needing to know all of the details of the underlying algorithms. Expert users on the other hand can manually select the analysis methods they would like to run and they can integrate additional methods via scripting.
