JMP Genomics

JMP, a subsidiary of SAS, has updated its JMP Genomics desktop software to enable the analysis of copy number of a particular gene or chromosomal region in an individual’s DNA, among other enhancements.
JMP Genomics 3.1 also includes capabilities for analysis of microarray, SNP, and proteomics data sets.
The release also features 3D graphics and the ability to distill research findings from huge volumes of data. JMP Genomics provides research results by linking statistical analyses with graphics.
Built on the SAS 9 and JMP 7 platforms, JMP Genomics 3.1 offers biologists and biostatisticians flexible, menu-driven platforms to access, evaluate, analyze, and explore data interactively to discover biologically relevant patterns, the company said. It is specifically designed to handle the enormous data sets common in genomics research.
