CLC Bio update in works
CLC bio today announced a forthcoming November release of CLC Bioinformatics Database that will enable users of CLC bio's DNA, RNA, and protein sequence analysis software to store and work on sequence data in a secure and shared central relational database. The software aims to raise the bar for what users can expect from a database system, and the development team has focused heavily on eliminating classic obstacles like different operating systems as well as limited support for database formats. CLC Bioinformatics Database is scheduled to ship in November (pricing was unavailable).
"CLC bio's new database solution is scalable and fully customizable, making it an ideal choice for many research organizations, from small university departments and clinical labs to large biotech and pharmaceutical companies," the company said. "The solution is aimed at organizations wishing to profit from the considerable business value of selecting a modern and flexible bioinformatics platform."
CLC bio is designed to serve as a full-service bioinformatics provider that solely focuses on the development of software, hardware, and data analysis with customized bioninformatics algorithms. The solution integrates and runs with several types of databases which include Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL while running either as a standalone database or a fully customized and integrated system.
"With this powerful and highly customizable solution for data sharing and efficient workflow support, CLC bio is leaping forward," Mr. Jan Lomholdt, vice president of global sales at CLC bio said. "Many academic and industrial customers have asked for a solution to share, manage and secure their valuable bioinformatics data, and we are proud to announce that we - as always - have developed what our customers ask for."
The database system includes the development of bioinformatics software as well as hardware based on the latest scientific findings, offers user-friendly cross-platform software, and offers frequent updates with the latest IT technologies, according to CLC bio.
