New Software Enables All Bioscientists to Analyse and Visualise Data While Allowing Expert Bioinformaticians to Add New Methods via Scripting
Bishops Stortford, England – November 16, 2016 – Dotmatics, a leading provider of scientific informatics solutions and services, today announced Vortex for Bioinformatics, an easy-to-use program designed to allow all bioscientists to analyse and visualise their data to make better-informed decisions.
Built into the long established and widely used Vortex program, Vortex for Bioinformatics can handle whole genome, antibody, protein and peptide data types and can scale to handle massive amounts of data including whole genomes on a laptop. With novel methods to relate biologic structure and sequence to activity, Vortex for Bioinformatics helps users understand assay results and drive forward the design of biologics with high performance analysis and visualization.
“Traditionally, a small number of experts are required to perform the analysis and visualization of bioinformatics data,” said Mike Hartshorn, PhD, Dotmatics Chief Science Officer. “These are the individuals who can script together the algorithms and programs needed to complete the discovery of knowledge. With Vortex for Bioinformatics, Dotmatics is broadening access to critical scientific methods while enabling discovery at the bench.”
Once a user loads bioinformatics data from files or directly from databases, Vortex for Bioinformatics displays the live sequences in a variety of formats. A selection of analysis algorithms is available including alignment, cross-alignment, clustering and search. The software makes intelligent selections of the correct methods to use based on the number and type of the sequences being analysed. This ensures that users can obtain appropriate results without having to know all of the algorithmic details, while power users can make manual selections. Expert bioinformatics can integrate additional methods via scripting
