"The latest enhancements to CDS should enable subscribers to more easily apply comparative genomics to their discovery process and to better understand the roles of genes in the context of evolutionary conservation," said Deborah Smeltzer, Vice President of the Knowledge Business for Applied Biosystems. "Applied Biosystems and Celera Genomics have made significant investments in data aggregation, validation, curation, classification, quality assurance, and have further integrated public reference data. We believe our subscribers will save time and costs through online access to an integrated set of high-quality data and analysis tools that eliminate the need for data infrastructure development and maintenance."
New subscriptions to the Celera Discovery System online platform will now be available to researchers at academic and non-profit institutions through a single-user, one-year subscription agreement. These researchers can easily begin the subscription process online through the CDS website, available at http://www.celeradiscoverysystem.com.
Applied Biosystems and Celera Genomics are collaborating to integrate Celera's genomic and biological information with Applied Biosystems' products and services. CDS subscribers can now order the Applied Biosystems Assays-on-Demand products, ready-to-use, functionally validated assays for genotyping and gene expression analysis, within the context of their analysis results using CDS.
The new release of CDS includes an updated interactive Map Viewer, which provides enhanced and customizable graphical dis
