Product News Oct 12, 2007
CLC bio has announced a November release of CLC Bioinformatics Database. This database solution - currently in beta-testing - enables users of CLC bio's DNA, RNA, and protein sequence analysis software to store and work on their sequence data in a central, shared, and secure relational database.
CLC bio's new database solution is scalable and fully customizable, making it an ideal choice for many research organizations, from small university departments and clinical labs to large biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
The solution is aimed at organizations wishing to profit from the considerable business value of selecting a modern and flexible bioinformatics platform.
CLC Bioinformatics Database raises the bar for what users can expect from a database solution, as the development team has focused heavily on eliminating classic obstacles such as different operating systems, limited support for database formats, or limited access to a central storage facility.
As with all other of CLC bio's solutions, CLC Bioinformatics Database is cross-platform, running on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Additionally, this solution will enable users across various workgroups to work on data in a central, shared, and secure relational database.
For the benefit of the diverse base of more than 50,000 existing users of CLC bio's solutions, CLC Bioinformatics Database integrates and runs smoothly with several types of databases, including Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL.
Furthermore it is the customer's choice whether the solution should run as a stand-alone database, or if it should be fully customized and integrated with the customer's existing database or even multiple databases.
