GenoLogics, JMP Genomics To Provide End-to-End Data Management And Analysis

VICTORIA, British Columbia Canada/EWORLDWIRE/May 27, 2009 --- GenoLogics and SAS today announced plans to integrate the Geneus lab and data management solution with the JMP(R) Genomics statistical discovery application from SAS to provide a comprehensive system for managing and analyzing large genomic data sets.

Together, Geneus and JMP Genomics will offer genomics centers a powerful combination. Geneus manages sample information and user workflows, and summarizes raw data from vast genomic data sets. JMP Genomics then provides interactive downstream analysis to uncover meaningful patterns in high-throughput genetics, expression microarray and proteomics data.

This integration will let research organizations maximize their return on investment by generating high-quality genomic data sets and applying specialized statistical analysis tools to identify crucial nuggets of information hidden in long lists of candidate genes or biomarkers.

"The data deluge is a challenge that genomics centers are struggling to overcome. By working with GenoLogics, we are able to provide our clients with a seamless solution that allows efficient data management with customizable analysis options. This solution can help bridge the gap between raw sequence reads and downstream statistical analysis to accelerate scientific discovery," said Shannon Conners, Ph.D., JMP Genomics product manager.

"Our goal with Geneus is to fully integrate our data management system with the leading instrument and software vendors in the genomics industry," said Sal Sanci, vice president of products for GenoLogics. "Along with the partnerships we have with instrument vendors such as Illumina and ABI, it's only natural that we also work with JMP Genomics to seamlessly enable downstream analysis for our clients."

JMP Genomics dynamically links advanced statistics with graphics to provide a complete picture of research results, whether the data comes from traditional microarray studies or from summarized results produced by next-generation technologies.

Geneus is a highly configurable and flexible lab and data management system that supports workflows across multiple technology platforms including next generation sequencing instruments. It provides genomics facilities with an end-to-end solution, from sample and workflow management to automating pipelines and consolidation of data-enabling analysis. Geneus is also part of a broader suite of informatics solutions for research labs, which enables integrated data analysis for experiments across multiple sciences and systems biology initiatives.
