CLC Bio Partners with World Fusion for Sequence Analysis Services in Japan


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.

In addition, World Fusion will assist CLC Bio Japan, which was founded last year, to further expand into the Japanese market. The goal is to establish CLC Bio “as the leading provider of high-throughput sequencing data analysis software in Japan, offering services in addition to those already offered by our current reseller,” said David Leangen, CEO of CLC Bio Japan, in a statement.
