CLC bio and Biobase partner to create integrated platform
Biobase and CLC bio have agreed a partnership to integrate Biobase's comprehensive Transfac database with CLC bio's workbenches and server solutions.
Combining CLC bio's algorithms and user-friendly platform with Biobase's collection of eukaryotic gene regulation data will provide researchers working with next generation sequencing data with access to experimentally proven knowledge for their genomics analyses. CLC bio has already started integrating Transfac as a plug-in into their workbenches and enterprise platform, and expects to release it commercially in the Spring of 2010.
CEO at CLC bio, Thomas Knudsen, said: 'It's a strategic goal for us to partner with companies who can deliver added benefits to our solutions.' Michael Tysiak, CEO at Biobase, continued: 'CLC bio offers a world class platform for user-friendly, fast, and advanced bioinformatics analysis of sequence data. Together we can tremendously enhance researchers' output, by giving them an integrated workflow and reporting tools which combine the best algorithms within genomics with the best gene regulation data.'
