After the ABRF Conference: Gene Codes Flooded with Requests for Early Access to NextGen Software Tools
Date:3/7/2011

ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene Codes Corporation has pulled back the curtain on some key features in its upcoming release of Sequencher® with support for Next Generation Sequencing [NGS] data. At the annual meeting of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities [ABRF] in San Antonio, Gene Codes showed alignments with paired and unpaired reads from SOLiD, Illumina and 454 instruments. Conference attendees were given hands-on experience calling some of the alignment and visualization algorithms and tools that had been published in peer-reviewed journals and are now incorporated into Sequencher. Since the conference ended, the phones at Gene Codes headquarters have been ringing with scientists wanting early access.

One of the conference attendees was Paul Morrison, Director of the Molecular Biology Core Facilities at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Associate Director of the Molecular Biology and Genomics Core Facility, Center for AIDS Research at Harvard University. "This is just what we always liked getting from Gene Codes," said Morrison who has been using Sequencher since 1992. "The interface is so clear and obvious that you don't really need someone to explain it."

Howard Cash, President of Gene Codes, said "Our focus at Gene Codes has always been on ease of use and building an intuitive and understandable interface to the software. This was just the next step in taking very complicated information and helping the user find their way through the data. We only showed some of what will be in Sequencher 5.0, and that is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what NGS analysis functions we plan to add over the next two years."

Cash also noted that many did not immediately believe that the NGS version of Sequencher would not come at a higher price. "Several companies that had software to support capillary sequencing created a new program for NextGen data that their customer could buy. We had never done that
