Basel, , CH-4016, Switzerland
Comprehensive, enterprise genome management solution accelerates the development of renewable chemicals for biofuel and biotech organizations
Orlando, Florida -- Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for life science, biotech, and drug discovery research, today announced the new Genedata Selector(TM) for Biofuels will be showcased at the 2012 World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing. Part of the Genedata Selector family of industry-specific editions, the Biofuels edition is tailored to support biosynthetic engineering R&D processes. The solution provides a platform for comprehensive genomic analysis (including genotype and phenotype relationships), enabling research across the entire R&D workflow in industrial biotech and specifically biofuels industries. Out-of-the-box, Genedata Selector provides a single, integrated system in which to manage the development of new, high-value strains producing a broad spectrum of renewable chemicals. Examples of optimization of microbial and fungal production strains will be among the Genedata Selector for Biofuels posters at the 2012 BIO World Congress (April 29 - May 2).
Optimizing Strain Selection for Biofuel Production
The demand for sustainable energy resources, beyond ethanol, is driving the development of new fermentation-based production processes of biofuels. A variety of organisms, including microbes, fungi, algae, and plants are used by biofuel producers. Genedata Selector for Biofuels integrates genome data from these organisms and provides data analysis tools that enable researchers and scientists to successfully design and select the optimal strain of a specific organism for biofuel production.
Providing an innovative computational platform with built-in business logic, Genedata Selector for Biofuels uniquely delivers a single system for complete mapping of all kinds of omics and pathway data. Enterprise-level and highly-scalable, the software enables a complete view from nucleotides to patents. Additionally, it can analyze thousands of genomes to identify capabilities for efficiently producing a broad spectrum of bio-based chemicals. Specifically, the system:
"Genedata Selector for Biofuels, the result of years of industry collaboration, is truly a ground-breaking R&D technology for renewable energy," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "Unlike traditional genome comparison software, it covers the complete biofuels R&D workflow, from genome analyses to the engineered end product. We are delighted to see its increasing adoption at leading biotech and biofuel companies, which are effectively accelerating the development of unique patented crops and micro-organisms that have proprietary biosynthetic production pathways."
