GenoLogics Announces Bioinformatics Partnership with Illumina
BEYOND GENOME CONFERENCE, San Francisco, CA, June 21, 2007 -GenoLogics, a leading developer of lab and data management software solutions for life sciences research, today announced that it has penned an agreement with Illumina, Inc. to become a technology partner and participant in IlluminaConnect, a bioinformatics software program established by Illumina to advance data integration and analysis among the life science community.
GenoLogics will build integrations into Geneus that support Illumina?s BeadArray technology platforms and software for both gene expression and genotyping applications. Geneus includes science-specific modules that are purposed for multiple genomics application areas, and is built on an enterprise laboratory information management system (LIMS) platform designed for scientific lab and data management.
Omoshile Clement, Ph.D., Senior Product Manager, Platforms at Illumina commented, "We are very happy to welcome GenoLogics as a new IlluminaConnect partner, and we look forward to working with them to develop integrations to our technology platforms for genotyping and gene expression applications."
?I am very excited about our partnership with Illumina. We are looking forward to offering Geneus with integrations to their BeadArray analysis software, BeadStudio, which will enable our customers with gene expression and genotyping applications to tie their data together using one integrating LIMS system. We will work closely with Illumina to ensure we develop seamless integrations that provide end-to-end solutions for researchers using Illumina genomics software and technologies,? said Jason Wilson, Product Manager at GenoLogics.
The most significant benefit from this partnership for customers ?this integration to Illumina software will enable customers to interconnect the Illumina technologies i n their lab with a LIMS and data management system developed specifically to address gene expression and genotyping workflows and genomics applications. This will allow for smooth data flow from one system to another with an integrating LIMS system that acts as the informatics backbone in one or multiple labs.
GenoLogics CEO, Michael Ball adds, "Our partnership with Illumina extends our network of strategic partners, building on one of our core differentiators. Our strong ties with best-in-class vendors enable us to provide end-to-end solutions for applications such as translational medicine and systems biology."
GenoLogics' Geneus provides LIMS functionality specifically for gene expression and genotyping applications and integrates to a wide variety of genomics instruments and software from best-in-class vendors, such as Illumina.
