Illumina, FlowJo to Develop Software Solution for Single Cell Genomics

Software for analysis and reporting of single cell data will advance research into cell function, disease progression, and therapeutic response


The software will complement the end-to-end commercial solution for high-throughput sequencing of single cells

Illumina, Inc. and FlowJo, LLC, has announced a partnership to develop and co-market analysis software for single cell next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Under the agreement FlowJo, LLC, the producer of FlowJo, market-leading software for single cell analysis, will develop a new software application.

It will provide additional secondary and tertiary analysis and visualization of datasets with an intuitive approach built on 19 years of experience working with cell biologists and immunologists in single cell phenotyping. The application will seamlessly integrate with Illumina's Single Cell RNA BaseSpace app, and provide a solution accelerating discovery.
