News Jan 28, 2010
DNASTAR, Inc. and the BioIT Alliance have announced the expansion of the BioIT Alliance program to include DNASTAR, a software company that has been meeting the sequence assembly and analysis needs of life scientists for more than 25 years.
The BioIT Alliance is a group of organizations working together to realize the potential of personalized medicine.
According to Les Jordan, Director of the BioIT Alliance, “Informatics is a key component in moving to true personalized medicine. With DNASTAR’s long-standing reputation for producing cutting edge desktop computer software tools for life scientists, it was only natural that DNASTAR would join the Alliance to help move the world closer to the reality of personalized medicine.”
Tom Schwei, DNASTAR’s General Manager, commented, “As the next-generation DNA sequencing revolution has expanded scientists’ thinking about what is possible, now is the time to aggressively move forward to solve the most important challenges we face in effectively processing, analyzing and interpreting the data generated by these new and emerging technologies. The keys to the future of human health are wrapped up in the data currently being generated. We at DNASTAR are pleased to be partnering with other members of the BioIT Alliance to help unlock the mysteries surrounding personalized medicine.”
