GenomeQuest, Invitrogen Make Sequence Analysis and Management Software Interoperable

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GenomeQuest said today that its sequencing data handling platform will now operate with Invitrogen’s sequence analysis software.
The Westborough, Mass.-based company said that it has worked with Invitrogen to interconnect its GenomeQuest 5.0 platform with the Invitrogen Vector NTI Advance software.
“The result of our collaboration expands the capabilities of both applications in the increasingly important realm of sequence search, analysis and data management,” GenomeQuest CEO Ronald Ranauro said in a statement.
The GenomeQuest platform now interoperates with the Vector NTI Advance Versions 9 and 10, and it also will operate with the upcoming Version 11, the company aid.
“The two platforms are highly complementary, and the combination of our desktop solution with GenomeQuest’s web-based application and worldwide sequence databases access will provide ... users with new, compelling sequence search options,” said James Caffey, Invitrogen’s Business Area Manager for Bioinformatics Software.
GenomeQuest 5.0 users will be able to select sequences of interest and send them to the Vector NTI Advance software for analysis including DNA assembly, multiple sequence alignment, protein analysis, and recombinant molecule construction.
Vector users also will be able to choose sequences and send them to the GenomeQuest platform for advanced searching, which includes a collection of over 225 million sequences, and the information could then be exported back to the Vector software for analysis.
