News Feb 08, 2011
Partek Incorporated, has announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Life Technologies Corporation, a provider of next-generation DNA sequencing technology. The agreement makes Partek Genomics Suite available through Life Technologies as a featured solution for analyzing data generated by Life Technologies’ next-generation sequencing (NGS) devices.
“Partek Genomics Suite, with its intuitive workflows designed for biologists, powerful statistical analysis tools and high-quality graphical outputs, is a terrific addition to our range of data processing and analysis solutions,” said Claude Benchimol, Senior Vice President of Biological Information Systems at Life Technologies. “Partek has worked closely with us to ensure seamless data integration and rapid analysis, enabling our customers to interpret and present their findings with unprecedented speed and ease.”
Partek Genomics Suite is a comprehensive solution for the analysis, comparison and integration of massive amounts of genomic data. Used by thousands of scientists worldwide, Partek Genomics Suite was cited in more than one peer-reviewed publication per day in 2010. It is unique in its ability to support all microarray and NGS technologies for RNA-, DNA- and gene regulation applications in a single software package, allowing also for the integration of multiple applications in a user-friendly way.
Embedded tools for alignment, quality control analysis, robust statistics, clustering, biological interpretation with functional classes and pathways helps scientists identify biomarkers and patterns in the data with confidence.
“We’re excited about our partnership with Life Technologies, a globally recognized leader in biotechnology,” said Tom Downey, President of Partek. “Collaborating with Life Technologies helps keep Partek on the forefront of developing software that streamlines and simplifies genomic data analysis.”
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
