BaseClear to Bundle Illumina Data with CLC bio's Software for Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis
News Jul 16, 2009
CLC bio has announced that the premier Dutch sequencing service center, BaseClear, will provide all customers receiving Next Generation Sequencing data with a license for CLC Genomics Workbench for assembly and downstream sequence analyzes.
Commercial Director at BaseClear, Bas Reichert, states, "In order for our customers to get the best possible information out of the Next Generation Sequencing data we produce with our Illumina Genome Analyzer II, we have been looking for a user-friendly solution with a relatively easy learning curve to bundle together with the data. With CLC bio's Genomics Workbench we have found that, and that increased scientific value for our customers is a compelling argument for us to enter an agreement of this type with CLC bio."
Director of Sales, Europe, The Middle East & Africa, at CLC bio, Michel Seidelin, PhD, continues, "Through their excellent service, BaseClear has for many years been the preferred sequencing partner for BeNeLux academic and non-academic laboratories. We’re pleased that BaseClear's Next Generation Sequencing customers now will be able to use the world's most user-friendly and comprehensive desktop program, CLC Genomics Workbench, for analysis and visualization of their genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics data. This will enable BaseClear's customers to easily assemble, visualize, and perform various downstream analyses of their Next Generation Sequencing data, helping them to rapidly focus on interpreting the biological relevance of their data."
This partnership between CLC bio and BaseClear is the first of many sequencing service centers projected to offer similar services.
Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
4000-Year Old DNA Helps Track the Spread of Rice Farming in AsiaNews
Rice farming spread far and wide in ancient Southeast Asia, but how it got there has been a mystery. Now, a study of 4000-year-old DNA—a rare find in this region—suggests it came with farmers migrating from China, where rice farming originated.
