AB Enzymes Chooses Genedata Selector for Production Strain Development and Optimization

Basel, Switzerland (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for industrial biotechnology, drug discovery, and life science research, today announced AB Enzymes will use Genedata Selector™ as its bioinformatics platform for strain genome data management on all its production-relevant organisms. Genedata will provide AB Enzymes, one of the world’s oldest and best-known enzyme manufacturers, with a hosted solution of Genedata Selector accompanied by bioinformatics consulting services. Genedata Selector, an enterprise genome management solution, streamlines strain optimization and selection through highly automated strain comparison algorithms coupled with efficient data storage capabilities to further safeguard AB Enzymes intellectual property. The solution will serve as centralized data management system connecting AB Enzymes global R&D operations.

“As we look to advance our next-generation sequencing and strain optimization projects we need to integrate our genomics data management and data analysis processes. We looked for a bioinformatics solution that enables us to extract as much information as possible from all available data,” noted Dr. Jari Vehmaanperä, global R&D director at AB Enzymes. “In particular, we wanted a solution to help us better understand underlying genotype-phenotype relationships - Genedata Selector was the clear choice.”

Cost Savings - Time Efficiencies - IP Protection
Genedata Selector analyzes and manages all strain-related data in the context of strain optimization processes. Integrating genomic data with transcriptomics and metabolomics data, Genedata Selector improves gene functional annotation, and provides insights into molecular pathways. Based on sophisticated data analysis algorithms, Genedata Selector establishes genotype-phenotype relationships that enable researchers to efficiently select the most promising strain lines for production. With all experimental data systematically integrated in a single data management system, Genedata Selector supports standardized data analysis workflows across an entire organization. These capabilities contribute to significant cost and time savings while enabling researchers to focus on scientific questions versus manually handling complex data. Moreover, the solution’s intuitive and interactive visualization tools advance efficient decision-making and accelerate Genedata Selector’s time-to-value.

As a hosted solution, Genedata manages the entire Genedata Selector implementation and its ongoing maintenance and support, minimizing a company’s overhead and providing significant cost savings. Inherently efficient, flexible, and secure, the Genedata-hosted model:

  •     Adapts to dynamic business requirements
  • Accelerates implementation time to days vs. weeks
  • Employs latest security protocols to ensure data are safe and only accessible to designated users
  • Enables users from multiple groups and sites to access the system for improved collaboration
  • Ensures – through ongoing monitoring - uninterrupted availability and security of intellectual property (IP)

“We are excited to add AB Enzymes, one of the world’s most successful enzyme companies, to our rapidly growing list of customers in the industrial biotechnology segment,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “AB Enzyme’s adoption of Genedata Selector validates our commitment to and investments in this vital and quickly evolving field. The combination of our domain expertise in bioinformatics and our unique Genedata Selector platform positions us to provide significant value for innovative partners such as AB Enzymes.”
