Applied Biosystems signs duo for future bioinformatics tools

Applied Biosystems’ Software Development Community has made formal agreements with Geospiza and GenomeQuest to develop bioinformatics tools for analysis and management of data generated by the SOLiD System, which is a throughput next-generation sequencing system.

The new relationship should help scientists to realise the full potential of next-generation genomic analysis.

As part of its participation in the Software Development Community, Geospiza has developed a software system to automate sequencing workflows for capillary electrophoresis (CE) instrumentation, and will expand its relationship with Applied Biosystems to include next-generation sequencing instruments.

Processing both CE and SOLiD data through a single data processing pipeline will enable researchers to integrate and visualise data sets from both technologies.

GenomeQuest has an integrated sequence information solution which, based on its database of reference sequences, can transform raw sequence data from the SOLiD System into insightful information. GenomeQuest’s platform should also help SOLiD System users with sequence alignment and analysis, offering increased productivity, and enabling scalability as customers increasingly use next-generation genomic analysis platforms.
