Making Sense of Life Sciences Data

JMP Genomics Venn DiagramIn life sciences, collecting data isn't the problem. Making sense of it is today's greatest challenge. Plan now to attend any of a series of East Coast seminars that demonstrate how JMP and JMP Genomics help researchers derive meaning from vast data stores. A New York City event on Feb. 16, hosted by New York University's Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, will focus on the use of data visualization and analysis in medicine. Seminars in Boston on Feb. 18 and in Bedminster, NJ on Feb. 25 will focus on applications in the broader realms of life sciences and biotechnology. All three seminars are open without charge to members of the scientific community. See the agenda and sign up today.

Accelerating Innovation with a Virtual Lab

PredictumPredictum - a consultancy based in Austin, Texas, and Toronto, Canada, and a JMP partner - helped a FORTUNE 500 company combine JMP and SAS to create a cutting-edge virtual lab for researchers to explore chemical formulations using predictive modeling. Scientists are expanding experimentation while cutting the experimental cycle from weeks to minutes. And the company saved substantial expense by adding JMP to existing SAS resources instead of building the virtual lab from scratch.
