7 January 2008



Ocimum Biosolutions has been rated as the top vendor in bioinformatics by a ValueNotes/KnowGenix research report - Bioinformatics Outsourcing in Life Sciences - India Opportunity. The report provides an analysis of the Indian vendor space, and aims to provide insights into industry practices and trends, and the emerging opportunity in bioinformatics outsourcing/ off-shoring. The study used a proprietary methodology to rate bioinformatics vendors in India. The vendor rating is based on weighted averages of various quantitative and qualitative factors, including reputation, size, service focus, financial strength, partnerships, recognition and certifications.

Poonam Bhana, an analyst at ValueNotes, said: ‘Ocimum Biosolutions through the acquisition of MWG’s DNA microarray business, Isogen Life Sciences’ biomolecules synthesis business and most recently, Gene Logic’s genomics business has emerged an integrated player in genomics services and a global oligo player. Though, it was set up as a pure bioinformatics company, it has expanded in the bioresearch business to emerge as an integrated life sciences company.’
