Premium

Station X has launched GenePool, a cloud-based software application to manage, analyze, and communicate genomic and clinical information. Users can analyze sequence information from both DNA and RNA to identify biomarkers. The software has a web browser interface. Users can do analysis comparisons between tumor and normal genomes, analyses comparing responders and non-responders, and trio-based analyses for genetic diseases, among other applications.


DNAnexus has launched PaaS, or platform-as-a-service to enable clinical testing laboratories to move their analysis pipelines into the cloud using their own algorithms as well as industry tools and resources to create customized workflows. According to the company, the platform enables genomic research enterprises to expand their data analysis and storage infrastructure needs into the cloud and transform large capital expenditures into transparent operating expenses.


DNAStar has launched Lasergene 11.2, a software upgrade that incorporates new sequence alignment methods and tools in the MegAlign Pro application. The new release now supports Clustal Omega, Mauve, a fully integrated Muscle alignment algorithm, and enhanced phylogenetic trees, according to the company.
