Bringing Powerful Analytic Software to Ontario

         January 15, 2014

At Golden Helix our number one priority is empowering genetic researchers world-wide with software tools that are as effective as they are robust. So needless to say, we are thrilled to announce a recent collaboration with the Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI), a not-for-profit organization focused on driving and catalyzing the life sciences industry in Ontario. Through this exciting partnership, we are bringing our SNP & Variation Suite (SVS) at a special rate.

Analytic software is increasingly important to genetic research, especially as next-gen sequencing evolves and datasets are becoming bigger and even more complex. Having a software tool that allows researchers to work with their data in real time has an exponential potential for genomic discoveries. SVS was created with biologists, clinicians, and researchers specifically in mind, offering a user-friendly interface. SVS performs complex analyses and visualizations easily, allowing researchers to turn genetic data into actionable information quickly.

Ontario is a hub of world-class research and OGI is committed to providing solutions to a variety of life science industries, including personalized health and agriculture. The license agreement will support their commitment by reducing the costs of SVS, making it more accessible to researchers and clinicians.

We look forward to helping OGI move genetic research forward in Ontario.

    Hey Cheryl – Happy New Year!
    I hope 2015 will be a good year for you.
    I see GH has partnered with OGI. Interesting.
    We lived in Canada for some 20 years, in Montreal then in London, Ont.
    I was a Professor at McGill and then at UWO, where I was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Moved to NJ in 1980, but left 2/3 of our family in Canada – daughter and family in Pickering, just outside Toronto, and a son an family in Calgary. (Actually a great …grandfather was a Hessian soldier fighting for the British, so when they lost the so-called Royalists fled to Canada in the late 1700s. My father was born in Utah, and I in California. Enough said.
    Thanks for all your help in the past several months. I expect to receive the BAM files with my EXOM sequence in a few weeks, and I eagerly await the opportunity to analyze it with Gabe’s help. I may try to visit Bozeman sometime, possibly on the way to Calgary.
