Partnership offers HTS services in Japan

Japanese informatics management specialist, World Fusion, announced the creation of a sequence analysis service centre with a bioinformatics infrastructure based on CLC bio's enterprise platform for high-throughtput sequencing data analysis, coupled with World Fusion's own Life Science Knowledge Bank (LSKB) bio knowledge database system.

Kozo Kawahara, president of World Fusion, said: 'After observing a big potential in the Japanese high-throughput sequencing service market, we have decided to use our experience in bioinformatics and understanding of the local life-science sector to make a dynamic and swift advance into this space. We think the combination of our in-house software and CLC bio's enterprise platform will help propel us quickly to a position as the leading Japanese sequencing service provider.'

In addition to establishing a sequencing service center, World Fusion also functions as CLC bio Japan's integration partner, assisting CLC bio Japan’s expansion into the Japanese market.

David Leangen, CEO of CLC bio Japan, added: 'World Fusion is a progressive and well respected local player and we believe they're capable of accelerating our further expansion into the Japanese market, with a goal of establishing CLC bio as the leading provider of high-throughput sequencing data analysis software in Japan, offering services in addition to those already offered by our current reseller.'
