Applied Biosystems as announced that its Software Development Community has established relationships resulting in two formal agreements intended to help scientists address next-generation sequencing bioinformatics challenges.

Geospiza® and GenomeQuest will develop bioinformatics tools that are expected to advance data analysis and management for life scientists utilizing data generated by the SOLiD™ System.

Geospiza has signed an agreement expanding its relationship with Applied Biosystems to include next-generation sequencing instrumentation. Applied Biosystems also formed an agreement with GenomeQuest, which provides an integrated sequence information platform allowing researchers to search and analyze genomic sequence data as a hosted service or as a hardware appliance.

The SOLiD System is capable of generating sequence data that exceeds 4 gigabases (GB), which is more than the approximately 3 billion bases of the human genome.

The solutions offered by Geospiza and GenomeQuest are expected to help address managing this vast amount of genomic data by providing complementary services, including the IT infrastructure to manage the data, as well as the ability to process the data and align it to a reference sequence.
