Biomatters today announced it has added the Molecular Profiler application to
Illumina’s BaseSpace Apps, Illumina’s dedicated applications store and
informatics community dedicated to advancing genomic analysis.

The Molecular Profiler for BaseSpace is a beautifully rendered, remotely
managed and securely delivered cloud-based genome browser.

“The release of the Molecular Profiler for BaseSpace is the first taste of our
vision to enable polyomic analysis.” says Biomatters’ CEO, Brett Ammundsen.
“This incarnation is designed around genomic workflows and analysis.”

CTO Matthew Landry adds, “By using modern web browser technologies, building
on scalable cloud infrastructure, and linking to rich ecosystems like
BaseSpace, we’re giving investigators the power to remotely access data from
anywhere in the world and interact with it using state-of-the-art
visualizations.”

The Molecular Profiler is a highly visual, HTML5 web-based genome browser that
looks and acts like a native app even though operating on remotely stored data
on Illumina’s BaseSpace.

Informatics solutions available through BaseSpace Apps will allow customers to
utilize the tools from a growing community of academic, commercial, and open
source providers. To demonstrate the utility of this rapidly growing toolset,
BaseSpace customers will have free access to all of the BaseSpace Apps until
January 1, 2013.

Biomatters develops software that accelerates the creation, publication and
application of knowledge from ‘omic research, with a mission to translate
genomic data into biological and clinical insights. Their flagship product,
Geneious, is a DNA, RNA and protein sequence alignment, assembly and analysis
software platform, integrating bioinformatic and molecular biology tools into
a simple interface.
