The University of British Columbia's (UBC) James Hogg iCapture Centre for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Research has selected InforSense GenSense to support its genetic research programmes into heart, lung and vascular systems.

'The volume of data being generated by the latest genotyping technologies is very large and growing exponentially, and we require a tool that scales to automatically check and analyse these large data sets,' said Scott Tebbutt, principal investigator and assistant professor at the centre. 'GenSense provides us with workflows and an easy-to-use portal that rapidly QCs and annotates the data, enabling us to quickly gain maximum value from our genome studies.'
