Geneious looks at the tree of life
The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City has chosen Geneious software, produced by New Zealand based Biomatters, to support research at the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics (SICG). ‘The Institute will use Geneious to support research investigating the tree of life, advancing the use of comparative genomics in biodiversity conservation, and human health and disease,’ commented Matthew S. Leslie, manager at SICG. The SICG will employ Geneious to greatly streamline sequence visualisation, assembly, primer design and BLAST searching.
As part of the agreement with the American Museum of Natural History, Biomatters has also agreed to donate several Geneious software licenses to Diponegoro University in Indonesia and the International Centre of Insect Physiology and the University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute.
