CLC bio Launches Software Update and now Includes Gene Expression Analyses
Product News Feb 06, 2009
CLC bio just launched major updates to all their workbenches, resulting in the largest software update in the company's history. In addition to a wide range of new features and improvements within sequence analysis, CLC bio’s two top software products CLC Main Workbench and CLC Genomics Workbench now support a full workflow in the analysis of both digital- and analogue gene expression, such as single-color microarray gene expression.
Dr. Anne-Mette K. Hein, PhD, Senior Scientist at CLC bio states, "With this major update we have launched now the World’s first comprehensive solution which combines sequence analysis with both digital- and analogue gene expression analyses in a completely integrated work environment. That means, we support all steps in a microarray workflow, ensuring a streamlined pipeline to support research like identifying differentially expressed genes and following these through in downstream analysis. We have spent over one year on development and we're delivering an intuitive approach to Gene Expression analysis with some advanced visualization tools, which hopefully will be welcomed by future customers."
In contrast to most Gene Expression software that are stand-alone applications lacking the integration with upstream and downstream sequence analyses, CLC bio's Expression Array analyses are completely integrated in CLC Main Workbench and CLC Genomics Workbench.
