NCGR Using JMP's Visualization Software for Next-Gen Sequencing

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Center for Genome Resources and SAS business unit JMP will co-develop software tools for next-generation sequencing data analysis, SAS said today.
NCGR researchers have been using the JMP Genomics software suite to analyze sequence data and have been offering advice about how to enhance the software, said Russ Wolfinger, director of scientific discovery and genomics at SAS. Wolfinger said that the “valuable suggestions for enhancements … will shape the software’s capabilities in future versions.”
Santa Fe, NM-based NCGR said that its researchers are using JMP Genomics in its research programs, including studies of schizophrenia and soybean genetics, under a license signed a year ago. Researchers there also use their own Alpheus software along with JMP Genomics visualization technology.
The NCGR center includes six Illumina Genome Analyzer II sequencers, and it provides sequencing for both NCGR and for outside clients.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
