DNAStar supports grant programme
DNAStar will join Ion Torrent in supporting the Ion PGM Sequencer Grant Program by providing perpetual licenses of its next-gen sequencing suite of software tools to the two European winners.
DNAStar's next-gen sequencing software suite includes tools to support reference-guided and de novo genome assembly, targeted resequencing, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq and miRNA alignment and analysis, and in-depth SNP discovery, analysis and genome annotation tools.
According to Jonathan Rothberg, founder and CEO of Ion Torrent, 'We are exceptionally pleased to have DNAStar support us and our customers in this programme. DNAStar's software is well suited to assemble data from the Ion PGM sequencer to produce outstanding analysis and graphical images. DNAStar is a strong partner and we look forward to working with them to effectively serve life scientists for many years to come.'
Tom Schwei, vice president and general manager of DNAStar, stated, 'Just as we've been doing for more than a generation of life scientists, we keep up to date with all of the latest sequencing technologies and effectively support them in a wide variety of applications. We are excited about working with Ion Torrent and their customers and we look forward to serving life scientists who choose this sequencing platform in the future.'
