Life Technologies has introduced LifeScope 2.0 Genomic Analysis Software, a bioinformatics system for analyzing data from genomic sequencing instruments to study human disease such as cancer.
LifeScope offers a software solution for genomic data analysis and management, combined with flexible computing options for life scientists and bioinformaticists performing research studies or disease-focused investigations.
LifeScope software accelerates genomic analysis though optimized mapping and other analysis algorithms to reduce time to results, with graphical outputs to simplify data interpretation that is accessible by anyone in the lab.
The new instrument can generate nearly 200 gigabytes of genomic data per week (equivalent to about 50 full-length DVDs), requiring substantial computational horsepower to both process and analyze the data and find the patterns indicated by rare diseases.
Life Technologies president and COO Mark Stevenson said LifeScope offers researchers a simple-to-use software system to speed their research for SNP detection, small RNA analysis and other genomic-related analyses with flexibility in hardware options that best fits their research needs, bringing the best software package to the most accurate sequencers available.
