“Bionano is pleased to participate in the CGC conference this year, with a variety of presentations and posters covering the utility of our solutions for cancer research applications. We are excited to share our latest product advancements with CGC conference attendees, including VIA, our new software that offers a simple and integrated workflow for visualization, interpretation and reporting for data types including OGM, next-generation sequencing and microarrays. VIA also features a heme malignancy workflow, including curated resources that represent guideline-based targets applicable to hematological disease, which we believe will make the product particularly relevant for cancer researchers,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Bionano.
