Biomatters Geneious Pro 3
New Zealand-based Biomatters has released Geneious Pro 3.0, an update to the application for scientists designed to search, organize, access, visualize and analyze genomic information. The company says that Geneious Pro 3.0 delivers a 'backbone' application connecting the spectrum of biological science, enabling existing and future software research tools to 'talk' with each other in full inter-operability. Offering sophisticated genome & proteome research tools as well as protein or molecular visualization, Geneious Pro 3.0 allows users to teach or learn bioinformatics interactively and includes patented scientific document and data "search and store" functions.
Collaboration features within Geneious allow users to chat, share data and work on projects together over the internet. In addition, Geneious can retrieve and categorize scientific information from any data source on the Web, allowing peers to collaborate in realtime, interface with lab equipment and other applications. Pricing is $1000 (with substantial discounts for academic institutions, governments organizations, and students). A limited free version is also available.
