Institute deploys Dnastar Lasergene software

The Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has chosen Dnastar Lasergene software as its sequence assembly and analysis software platform for its faculty, staff and students.

Dr Adam Karpf, associate professor at the institute, said: 'Many of our researchers have used Lasergene for years and been extremely satisfied with it. Dnastar made us an attractive offer to provide access to their software to all of our scientists, staff and students.

'We took advantage of the opportunity to allow our team to have access to strong molecular biology software on an unlimited basis. This arrangement will help support our success and growth for years to come.'

Tom Schwei, vice president and general manager of Dnastar, said: 'This site license provides a uniform structure that will support the Institute in all of its endeavours.  As we continue to develop our software to meet emerging cancer research needs, all faculty, staff and students at the Institute will benefit by having access to the most recent developments in our products. 

'We appreciate the trust placed in our tools and company by the staff of the Institute and we look forward to continuing to meet their sequence assembly and analysis software needs in the future.'
