Synamatix has announced that Washington University Genome Sequencing Center (WUGSC) has licensed SynaBASE™ and associated applications for use in high-throughput genomic analysis for internal research projects.
The Center will also apply selected Synamatix applications towards enhancing quality control of data from newly sequenced genomes.
The SynaBASE database platform is a novel approach towards enhancing the scalability, sensitivity and performance of genomics research without necessarily requiring incremental utilization of specialist computer hardware.
Dr. Jarret Glasscock, who heads the computational biology group at WUGSC stated, “We are excited about the potential of applying SynaBASE towards our larger scale tasks as well as addressing some novel areas which take advantage of the SynaBASE approach.”
Dr. Arif Anwar, Vice President of Synamatix said, “It is particularly encouraging to welcome WUGSC as a partner and user as they have identified numerous additional applications for the SynaBASE platform. We are looking forward to developing a mutually beneficial partnership which can deliver tangible advances in genome research.”
