CLC bio has announced that Sapphire Energy, Inc. has installed a custom-made bioinformatics solution from CLC bio in their research center in San Diego. Sapphire Energy is at the forefront of the biofuel industry with the potential to radically change the world's energy landscape with 'Green Crude' - a renewable crude oil that is a result of a proprietary process of turning sunlight, CO2, and algae into green oils to be refined into fuel.

"Using sophisticated breeding and selection methods, we're perfecting the efficiency of oil-producing algae, which live mostly on sunlight and carbon dioxide, and improving algae's resistance to disease and its harvest-capability," says Dr. Christopher Yohn, principal scientist at Sapphire Energy.

"To meet our development goals, we recognized the need for bioinformatics software. CLC bio has delivered quality custom solutions to automate several critical processes in our R and D workflows."

"I'm pleased that we could assist Sapphire Energy in automating their bioinformatics analysis pipeline in time for a large scale-up in their sequencing projects," states Dr. Cecilie Boysen, Senior Consulting Manager at CLC bio.

"It is always exciting to be able to help and work with companies in the renewable energy sector, as this is an area that has a huge potential to shape everyone's future in a positive way."

CLC bio's consulting department designs and implements customized bioinformatics solutions that help organizations work more effectively, shifting the efforts from repetitive, manual tasks to tasks that adds scientific value, and thereby reduce the time-to-market for their research results.
