GenoLogics Announces Bioinformatics Partnership with Illumina
News Jun 22, 2007
GenoLogics has announced that it has penned an agreement with Illumina, Inc. to become a technology partner and participant in IlluminaConnect, a bioinformatics software program established by Illumina to advance data integration and analysis among the life science community.
GenoLogics will build integrations into Geneus that support Illumina's BeadArray technology platforms and software for both gene expression and genotyping applications. Geneus includes science-specific modules that are purposed for multiple genomics application areas, and is built on an enterprise laboratory information management system (LIMS) platform designed for scientific lab and data management.
Omoshile Clement, Ph.D., Senior Product Manager, Platforms at Illumina commented, "We are very happy to welcome GenoLogics as a new IlluminaConnect partner, and we look forward to working with them to develop integrations to our technology platforms for genotyping and gene expression applications."
The benefit from this partnership for customers -this integration to Illumina software will enable customers to interconnect the Illumina technologies in their lab with a LIMS and data management system developed specifically to address gene expression and genotyping workflows and genomics applications. This will allow for smooth data flow from one system to another with an integrating LIMS system that acts as the informatics backbone in one or multiple labs.
