The global site license agreement, for CLC Genomics Workbench, covers all researchers at all BGI sites, both inside and outside of China.

Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) has signed a global site license agreement for CLC bio's Next Generation Sequencing solution, CLC Genomics Workbench. The site license covers all researchers at all BGI sites, both inside and outside of China.

Head of Bioinformatics Division at BGI, Ruiqiang Li states, “We have chosen CLC Genomics Workbench as our platform for analyzing Next Generation Sequencing data after testing several commercial solutions, because it’s simply in a league of its own when it comes to flexibility and the way the Next Generation Sequencing tools can be used together with our own algorithms. In an organization of our size - with seventeen Illumina GA analyzers, as well as two AB/SOLiD and three Roche/454 Next Generation Sequencing machines, all of them running at full capacity - efficient workflows are of critical importance.”

“We can support and expand our workflows by giving our scientists easy access via the Workbench to our own in-house developed algorithms. In no time, CLC Genomics Workbench has proved amazingly popular with our internal researchers, due to the fast, user-friendly and versatile platform it provides,” Li added.

CLC Genomics Workbench is the first comprehensive analysis package which can analyze and visualize data from all the major NGS platforms, such as Solexa by Illumina, SOLiD by Applied Biosystems, 454 by Roche Applied Science, and HeliScope by Helicos.

CLC Genomics Workbench takes full advantage of "paired end" data and supports a number of features and work-tasks, such as reference assembly of genomes, de novo assembly of genomes, SNP detection using advanced models, multiplexing, and high-throughput trimming.
