First-in-class Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits manages and analyzes genomic profiling data to optimize production processes

Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for life science, biotech, and drug discovery research, has announced release of the new Genedata SelectorTM for Beer, Wine & Spirits. This first-in-class turnkey solution provides a platform for comprehensive genomic data analysis of brewing yeast and other genomes vital to improving the efficiency of fermentation processes. It enables researchers to optimize production strains and develop testing tools that monitor product quality, yeast viability, genetic drift, and microbial purity. Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits includes pre-processed, "gold standard" genome data from beer and wine yeast strains, as well as plants and industry-specific microbes.  

"Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits will be an ideal solution for enhancing yeast breeding and fermentation strategies," noted Prof. Hiroshi Takagi of the Nara Institute of Science and Technology. "Its ability to integrate a variety of complex experimental data from omics studies and securely store intellectual property as it applies to patents will be highly valuable for applied microbiologists like me."  

Beyond a Genomic Database
On a single platform, Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits uniquely provides an integrated and relational view into genome sequences as well as the foundation for comparative genomics and mutation analysis. It relates any type of molecular data from sequences over pathways to phenotypes and intellectual property, enabling efficient phenotype-genotype analysis across the R&D pipeline. Capitalizing on the vast amount of data generated by new molecular technologies such as next-generation sequencing, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, the Beer, Wine & Spirits edition helps identify variations in yeast physiology to effectively improve production processes and quality management.

As part of the Genedata Selector family of industry-specific editions, the Beer, Wine & Spirits edition is open, enterprise-level, and scalable. Supporting innovative research, it gives researchers, technical brewers, and quality controllers the ability to analyze their experimental data in a fully integrated fashion. When coupled with proprietary data, Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits provides a comprehensive platform that fuels discovery and strengthens intellectual property by delivering genomic insights into:

Catalysts: Improve knowledge of genetics and physiology of yeast strains under fermentation for enhanced process efficiency and product quality.  

Ingredients: Understand biology at the molecular level to identify advantageous traits in plant mutants that can be transferred to new high yield varieties. 
 
Quality Management: Investigate and monitor microbial purity to produce premium quality beer and alcoholic beverages.

"Genedata is committed to supporting industrial biotechnology with innovations that make R&D and production processes more efficient," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "With the Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits edition, we provide a tailor-made, computational solution that addresses specific requirements of the beverage industry. Of equal importance, we enrich our state-of-the-art software with a portfolio of domain-focused professional, consulting, and hosting services for a complete one-stop solution."  

Available directly from Genedata, Genedata Selector for Beer, Wine & Spirits can be hosted by Genedata or installed locally.

A team of plant breeders, farmers, non-profit agencies, seed advocates, and policymakers have created the Open Source Seed Initiative.
Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Invasive Species Could Cause Billions in Agriculture Damages
Invasive insects and pathogens could be a multi-billion-dollar threat to global agriculture and developing countries may be the biggest target, according to a team of international researchers.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
