NextBio improves integration and mining of array and gene sequencing
4 May 2010
NextBio has launched a new version of its life science
research platform, adding new capabilities for the integration and
mining of high-throughput array and next-generation sequencing data.
The new NextBio Sequence-Centric module enables researchers to
effectively explore and utilize massive amounts of public and
internally generated sequencing data, while allowing organizations
to create corporate-wide genomic data platforms to serve the needs
of their global research teams.
“As the use of high-throughput sequencing technologies continues
to grow, the resulting massive volumes of data are making effective
data interpretation imperative,” said Saeid Akhtari, President and
Chief Executive Officer of NextBio.
“The latest evolution of NextBio is designed to help research
organizations intelligently consume public and internal genomic data
from transcriptomic, copy-number, epigenetic and resequencing
studies, and to use the knowledge gained to advance strategically
important initiatives in basic and clinical research. The ability to
integrate and correlate massive volumes of diverse data using a
single platform provides our users unimaginable opportunities for
generating hypotheses, designing experiments, and, ultimately,
making major discoveries.”
The technology developed by NextBio allows researchers in basic
science, drug discovery and clinical research to obtain a correlated
view of large quantities of processed public data in conjunction
with their own datasets. Using NextBio, researchers can explore
these diverse types of data within a single environment at
unprecedented speed and scale, with just a few mouse clicks.
