Enpicom ImmunoGenomiX Software V2.0

Dutch bioinformatics firm Enpicom has released version 2.0 of its ImmunoGenomiX (IGX) Platform for the management, analysis, and visualization of T- and B-cell receptor sequencing data. The new version supports single-cell sequencing data in addition to bulk sequencing data. The ability to analyze data from both single-cell and bulk sequencing workflows in tandem provides new opportunities for immunomics research and drug development, the company said. Other new enhancements include the IGX-Compare app, which allows users to compare any two data sets to visualize and prioritize matching clones; and more extensive data support, supporting the upload of readily annotated clone tables from, for instance, 10x Genomics or Adaptive Biotechnologies. The new version also features more clonotype grouping definitions and V/J gene usage plotting.
