Product News May 01, 2007
New Zealand based software company Biomatters Ltd has announced the release of version 3.0 of Geneious Pro, the bioinformatics application with more than 50,000 downloads worldwide.
The release of Geneious Pro 3.0, by kiwi scientific software company Biomatters Ltd, enables any scientist with a connection to the Internet to search, organize, access, visualize and analyze genomic information – in a single desktop platform.
The Geneious™ application has been developed in New Zealand over the past two years, by New Zealanders with input from scientists from Oxford and UCLA, and has a worldwide user base of over 50,000 downloads from more than 30 countries.
While many suppliers of science software have focused on delivering products that specialize in very specific areas of data analysis and research, Geneious Pro 3.0 delivers a backbone application connecting the spectrum of biological science. Geneious™ enables existing and future software research tools to 'talk' with each other in full inter-operability.
Teaching bioinformatics has never been easier. Geneious Pro 3.0 allows users to teach or learn bioinformatics interactively. Dr. Mike Bunce of Murdoch University in Australia had this to say about Geneious, "An amazing cross-platform application. I can't recommend it highly enough. It has allowed my students to do bioinformatics in 1/6 of the time."
Students are guided through analysis and exercises with all the data and tools just a click away. Geneious also allows teachers to create their own tutorials using live links to data and communicate with students using built-in collaboration features.
Geneious includes patented scientific document and data "search and store" functions that are valuable for IP consultants and knowledge managers, as well as scientists. Special collaboration features within Geneious allow users to chat, share data and work on projects together anywhere in the world.
CEO of Biomatters Candace Toner believes the Geneious platform has the potential to become the unifying platform of the scientific community. “Geneious can retrieve and categorize scientific information from any data source on the web, allow peers to collaborate in real time, interface with lab equipment and other applications and users can customize their own plug-ins. It really is the Holy Grail of science software.”
