Bioinformatics software deployed across academic institutions
CLC bio and VIB, a life sciences research institute in Flanders, Belgium, have signed an academic regional site license agreement for CLC bio's sequence analysis software, CLC DNA Workbench. The software will be used across academic institutions in the Flanders region in Belgium, including Universiteit Gent, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, University of Antwerp and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
Herwig Van Marck, manager of BITS, the facility that manages a portfolio of up-to-date bioinformatics software for scientists at VIB, commented: ‘Bioinformatics is central to almost all areas of life sciences research today, so our researchers need access to the best and most innovative tools. When CLC bio added multisite gateway cloning to their suite, it was a straightforward decision to select this package for sequence data analysis.’
