Evonik expands relationship with Genedata

Evonik, a specialty chemicals company, is extending its collaboration with Genedata. The company has successfully used the Genedata Selector software to manage, visualise, and analyse complete genomes of production strain collections with a focus on mutation analysis and deciphering complex genotype-phenotype relationships. Genedata Selector accelerates difficult strain optimisation projects for the production of bio-based chemicals, nutritional proteins, food and feed additives, and cosmetics ingredients. 

Evonik will now also use Genedata’s specialised IT services, and scientific data analysis consulting services. Based on in-depth and extensive experience in the industrial biotechnology field, these value-added services help to eliminate resource bottlenecks, provide cost-effective support for strategically important projects, and deliver valuable results quickly and efficiently.

‘New, data-intensive and omics-based technologies are catalysts for innovation in the health and food industries,’ said Dr Ralf Kelle, vice president of R&D Bioproducts for the Evonik Health and Nutrition business unit. ‘Genedata – with its domain expertise in data analysis and management – helps us get maximum value from our data. More importantly, our relationship with Genedata allows us to benefit from their innovative solutions, which contribute to the success of our resource-efficient and sustainable biotechnology research.’
