Illumina to Use GenoLogics Data Management System with Genome Analyzer

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GenoLogics today said that Illumina has selected its Geneus lab and data management system to be used in combination with Illumina’s second-generation DNA sequencer, the Genome Analyzer.
GenoLogics said that the collaboration would provide customers with a “clear path to obtain an end-to-end lab and data management solution for next-generation sequencing as well as a single system for enabling cross-genomics experiments.” The Victoria, BC-based firm said that Geneus supports both the Genome Analyzer and Illumina’s iScan data workflows for multiple genomics applications.
“The comprehensive way in which we are working with GenoLogics is a new approach for us, taking our partnership to a whole new level by integrating Genome Analyzer workflows into Geneus, in addition to integrating other Illumina platforms,” said Omoshile Clement, senior product manager of informatics for Illumina, in a statement.
