CLC Bioinformatics Database

CLC bio has updated the CLC Bioinformatics Database. The database enables users of CLC bio's DNA, RNA, and protein sequence analysis software to store and work on their sequence data in a central, shared, and secure relational database.

CLC bio's new database solution is scalable and customisable, making it suitable for both small and large organisations. The software is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux operating systems. The solution will enable users across various workgroups to work on data in a central, shared, and secure relational database.

The software integrates and runs smoothly with several types of databases, including Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL. The customer can choose whether the solution runs as a stand-alone database or is integrated with other databases.
