Gentelligent, Inc. Asks 'Is your DNA in Excel?'
Date:11/14/2007

BELMONT, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentelligent, Inc. today announced the launch of BasePro 1.0, the world's first Excel-based software to handle DNA, RNA and protein data. A downloadable add-in, Base Pro provides over 40 functions for rapid and intuitive manipulation of biological sequences. Without leaving Excel, scientists and bioinformatics professionals can now easily handle research-related tasks that previously required custom programming or expensive genomics software packages.

"The user just downloads the add-in, and it shows up immediately in the Excel functions - right there and ready-to-use. As former researchers and bioinformaticists types ourselves, we're pretty excited about how well it turned out," commented President Jim Eberle, adding that "BasePro should save a lot of users a lot of time; it's kind of surprising that we're the first company to bring these functions to Excel."

BasePro allows users to do everything from determining primer melting temperatures and molecular weights to automatically expanding and contracting IUPAC codes and identifying sequence repeats. According to co-founder Andrew Boudreau, "The software is really designed to solve the daily challenges of researchers, and our beta users have given us enthusiastic feedback. Any user who can use Excel's built-in functions already knows how to use BasePro."

As Paul Hardenbol, PhD, one of the founders of ParAllele BioScience, put it "In the course of my research, I store a lot of data in Excel - and for years I've just had to deal with exporting and importing huge files into other software packages or getting help from the IT group. I've been using BasePro for months now, and there's no going back to the way I dealt with genetic data before."

BasePro 1.0 is supported in Excel versions 2002 (XP), 2003, and 2007, and includes fully integrated help. It is also compatible with all versions of Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. A fully-functional, 30 day trial is available from http://www.gentelligent.com. The product can be purchased via the web or by contacting Gentelligent directly.
