Computing industry giant IBM and gene-chip maker Affymetrix have announced a partnership to supply clinical genomics capabilities to medical research facilities and drug makers. Affymetrix expects to provide its genotyping platform, while IBM will offer systems integration and regulatory compliance services. This will allow companies to quickly assemble a lab built for genetic and genomic profiling as well as within regulatory requirements.
