GenoCAD Releases Combinatorial Design Tool to Optimize Protein Expression and Streamline DNA Synthesis Orders

Press Release | GenoCAD | September 1, 2015

GenoCAD, a leading provider of DNA design software tools, today announced the release of a groundbreaking new version of its flagship DNA design platform, which has been enhanced to boost user productivity. GenoCAD’s rule-based design methodology breaks down complex DNA sequences into numerous genetic parts, which in turn can be recombined using specific sets of rules to ensure the resulting DNA constructs can be “read” by cells. This approach allows for more flexibility and efficiency in the design process than more traditional approaches that rely on manually cutting and pasting DNA fragments.

Open Data Projects Win Wellcome Trust, NIH and HHMI Open Science Prize

The Open Science Prize, a new initiative from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and the Wellcome Trust, encourages and supports open science approaches that generate benefit to society, advance research and spur innovation. An integral component of the selection process is demonstrated use and generation of open data, so PLOS is proud that this year’s winner of the Open Science Prize is PLOS author and evolutionary, computational biologist Trevor Bedford of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington...

Open Science Prize Goes to Software Tool for Tracking Viral Outbreaks

Press Release | Fred Hutch | February 28, 2017

“Everyone is doing sequencing, but most people aren’t able to analyze their sequences as well or as quickly as they might want to,” Bedford said. “We’re trying to fill in this gap so that the World Health Organization or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — or whoever — can have better analysis tools to do what they do. We’re hoping that will get our software in the hands of a lot of people”...
