Genedata Selector 6.0

Genedata has released its Selector 6.0 enterprise software for biopharmaceutical R&D. This newest version of Selector automates next-generation sequencing-based workflows with wizard-style playbooks that guide users through the entire workflow from sample registration to report generation, Genedata said. The workflows can be approved and locked for use in playbooks to minimize the risk of variations in data processing. Other new features include a configurable dashboard with status cards to provide scientists and managers quick access to project status and other information and a robust genome loading tool that enhances system performance and simplifies genome database maintenance, Genedata said.
