CLC Bio Japan, a subsidiary of CLC Bio, and Japanese informatics management firm World Fusion have partnered to offer high-throughput sequence data analysis services to customers in Japan, the firms said last week.

The companies have created a sequence analysis service center that uses CLC Bio’s enterprise platform for sequence data analysis and World Fusion’s Life Science Knowledge Bank database system.
