CLC bio expands next-generation sequencing solutions with ChIP-sequencing
15 June 2009
CLC bio has released new versions of their premier solutions for
analyzing and visualizing next generation sequencing data, the desktop
application CLC Genomics Workbench, version 3.5 and the award-winning
enterprise platform CLC Genomics Server, version 1.5.
With this release, CLC bio is making a major push into epigenomics by
supporting chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-seq) analysis.
The Director of Scientific Solutions at CLC bio, Dr Roald Forsberg,
stated: “ChIP-seq is a very important application of the Next Generation
Sequencing technologies and we are proud to offer the first integrated
solution which can easily enable researchers to go from raw data,
through reference alignment and onto advanced visual and tabular output
of ChIP-seq results.
"Besides taking us into epigenomics, our developers have also done a
fantastic job of improving the speed and memory performance of our
software making us very confident that we can track performance as data
Furthermore, today’s release includes a number of new assembly
statistics and an expansion of CLC bio’s RNA-sequencing tools, including
support for native colour space data and more statistical tests.
CLC bio offers the first and only comprehensive analysis solutions
for genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics, which can analyze and
visualize data from all major Next Generation Sequencing platforms, like
Illumina’s Genome Analyzer, SOLiD by Applied Biosystems, 454 by Roche,
and HeliScope by Helicos. CLC Genomics Workbench is platform
independent, running on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux — including 64-bit
A select few customers are already using CLC bio’s enterprise
platform, CLC Genomics Server, which won the Best of Show award at the
Bio-IT World Conference in Boston 2009, including the J Craig Venter
Institute, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and the National
Institutes of Health (USA).
