CLC bio Bridges Digital and Analogue Gene Expression with new Version of CLC Genomics Workbench
News Jan 28, 2009
CLC bio has released version 3.0 of their solution for analyzing and visualizing Next Generation Sequencing data, CLC Genomics Workbench.
The new version is crammed with features like digital gene expression, expression analysis of micro arrays and RNA-seq data – and an overhauled long reads assembler which is said to be up to 15 times faster than the previous version.
"With this release we deliver the world's first complete cross-platform solution which combines Expression Analyzes with Next Generation Sequencing, thereby building a bridge between digital and analogue gene expression" states Dr. Roald Forsberg, Director of Scientific Solutions at CLC bio.
Dr. Forsberg continues, "Furthermore, we embrace the fact that the NGS vendors continually are providing longer and longer reads, and to fully utilize that potential we have improved our assembler for long reads, so it's now up 15 times faster and delivers more precise results compared to short read assembly."
According to Company, CLC Genomics Workbench is the first and only comprehensive analysis package, which can analyze and visualize data from all major Next Generation Sequencing platforms. CLC Genomics Workbench is platform independent, running on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux - including 64bit versions.
More and more consumers are using services like 23andMe to learn about their genetic blueprint. Included with most of these services is the ability for users to download their "raw" genetic data, which can be further analyzed using third-party apps. But little is known about how and why consumers are using these apps, or about a variety of potential risks associated with these apps, until now.READ MORE
