GenomeQuest Begins West Coast Swing of its Sequence Data Management Luncheon Tour
News Apr 19, 2010
GenomeQuest begins the "West Coast Swing" of its SDM Luncheon Tour. In these educational luncheons for life science researchers and developers, Richard Resnick, the company vice president of software, is showcasing:
• How researchers can compare, mine, and manage their next-generation sequence data (NGS), annotations, and findings across billions of reads - from a simple web browser.
• How developers can customize SDM with application programming interfaces (APIs) to support all research/clinical workflows and consolidate their bioinformatic support across users, instruments, tools, databases, projects, and organizations.
• How organizations can scale their SDM to NGS volumes and to secure cloud sharing of sequence data and results.
Major pharmas, core labs, medical institutions, large academic institutions, and biotech startups were all well represented at the kickoff luncheon in Cambridge, MA. The West Coast luncheons follow last week's announcement of the GenomeQuest API (accessing the GQ Engine) for bioinformatics developers and computational scientists.
With cybersecurity one of the nation's top security concerns and billions of people affected by breaches last year, government and businesses are spending more time and money defending against it. Researchers at the Army's corporate research laboratory, in collaboration with Towson University, may have identified a new way to improve network security.
