- New Program Makes SLIM Search Very Affordable for Genomic Research -
MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Addressing mounting interest within the academic community for its innovative genomic search technology, SLIM Search, Inc. today announces its Academic Pricing Program. The new Academic Pricing Program enables universities and academic institutions to purchase the SLIM Search solution at an 87% discount over commercial pricing. This enables SLIM Search, Inc. to offer the single core academic annual license of its SLIM Search tool for only $199.00 US.
"SLIM Search is a genomic research tool that is uniquely suited for the educational research environment found in universities," states Dr. Leonard Bloksberg, CEO of SLIM Search, Ltd. "SLIM Search provides more speed, flexibility and sensitivity for the academic researcher performing biotechnology, molecular cell-biology and genomic research. SLIM Search is a fundamental tool for basic research, but for the academic scientist with limited budget and computer resources, SLIM Search opens up whole new possibilities for creativity."
Improved Search Speed and Sensitivity
SLIM Search improves the efficiency of indexing the subject into
memory, and scanning for hits. It also adds several options for
flexibility, providing the user with the best features of all existing
technologies. An exact match of 11 nucleotides is always the same,
regardless of what method is used to find it. When the chunking conditions
are set the same, the sensitivity will be identical between SLIM Search and
any method it is compared with, but SLIM Search is faster. It also offers
alternatives to achieve equivalent sensitivity, with even greater speed.
Because SLIM Search only addresses the primary search phase, it can be
paired with any secondary alignment phase. The first release of SLIM is
paired with BL2SEQ (the alignment phase from the NCBI Blast package). The
final result can be identical to what
