TATAA Biocenter, Basepair Partner
News Sep 20, 2016
TATAA Biocenter has partnered with Basepair to offer a significantly faster and easier-to-use tool for commercial and academic projects. As part of the partnership, TATAA Biocenter will offer its customers a seamlessly integrated online portal on https://tataa.basepairtech.com as an important component of its overall solution set. TATAA will also use Basepair’s software in its popular NGS training courses.
“Probably the biggest bottleneck our NGS customers and students run into is data analysis and interpretation. Waiting a day -- or even longer -- to get results just isn’t an option for many of them. So having a partner like Basepair whose software can process the analysis in about an hour was a great fit for our business,” said Mikael Kubista, President of TATAA Biocenter.
“We also appreciate the fact that the user does not have to be a computer scientist or bioinfomatician to run the analysis -- the intuitive user interface means that anyone can do it with just a couple clicks. There are even multiple built-in workflows.”
"We’re always looking to partner with innovative companies that are true leaders in the genomic
services industry, and TATAA Biocenter is exactly that. There is great synergy between their
customers’ and students’ NGS data analysis needs and our software’s ability to make the
analysis as easy as booking a flight online,” said Dr. Amit Sinha, Founder and CEO of Basepair.
Habitat loss, habitat fragmentation and the loss of genetic diversity are the main factors driving the extinction of many wild species, and the few eastern massasauga rattlesnakes remaining in Illinois have certainly suffered two of the three. A long-term study of these snakes reveals, however, that – despite their alarming decline in numbers – they have retained a surprising amount of genetic diversity.READ MORE
Researchers have discovered a navigational gene in glass catfish called the electromagnetic-perceptive gene, or EPG, that responds to certain magnetic waves. These findings have the potential to revolutionize treatments for humans and help those who suffer from tremors related to Parkinson’s and seizures associated with epilepsy.
