Evonik Extends Long-term Research & Development Partnership with Genedata
Date:2/23/2010

Significant Expansion of Genedata Phylosopher® and Genedata Expressionist® at Evonik for Industrial Biotechnology R&D Processes

Basel, Switzerland (PRWEB) February 23, 2010 -- Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for industrial biotechnology R&D, today announced an extended partnership with Evonik, a leading life science, specialty chemicals and material science company. Evonik is expanding the application of its central computational infrastructure and has renewed licenses for the Genedata Phylosopher® research data management system and the Genedata Expressionist® cross-omics and molecular profiling system. Genedata systems are now used across biotechnology research and development processes in the fields of health and nutrition and consumer specialties at Evonik. Specific applications areas include: production strain optimization for feed, food and pharma amino acids and derivatives; process monitoring for fermentation-based production; and novel developments for care specialties.

Genedata’s software is key for us to efficiently store, process and interpret the biological and bioprocess-related data generated at our R&D and global production sites,” said Stephan Hans, head of Functional Cell Analysis Group, R&D Bioproducts at Evonik. “With Genedata’s data management solutions we are able to centrally manage all data related to our proprietary production strains and processes. Data integrity, accessibility and process support are the main reasons why Evonik decided to use Genedata systems in the first place, and why Evonik is now broadening their application spectrum.”

Transcriptomics and metabolomics have become essential technologies for guiding our strain development processes. The increasing data complexity and data volumes acquired in each strain and process development project is dramatic, which is why we need a stable and scalable computational solution,” noted Dr. Ralf Kelle, vice president of R&D Biotechnology at Evonik. “In addition, strain genotyping using next-generation sequencing technology has enabled us to systematically assess whole strain ancestries on a molecular level. Genedata’s tools pinpoint production-relevant mutations and evaluate their impact on genes, pathways and overall production phenotypes.”

"We are proud to have been able to broaden our relationship with Evonik, a major player in industrial biotechnology,” commented Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “Our computational platform is tailored to support biotechnological research and development processes. The increasing demand for bio-based products and sustainable production processes is driving our continuous commitment to develop solutions for the white biotech market.”
