GenomeQuest Launches New IP Management Module

June 24, 2014

GenomeQuest incorporates intellectual property management into its secure cloud search application

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- GenomeQuest Inc., a global provider of Intellectual Property search solutions for life science companies, today announced that its flagship software now includes a module for enabling customers to manage their corporate sequence IP. The new Sequence IP Manager extends the company’s existing search capabilities by allowing customers to create and manage corporate biological sequence records and search them alongside GenomeQuest’s leading GQ-Pat database in a secure and SOC II HIPAA compliant cloud-based environment.

“Our life science customers succeed based on their intellectual property strategy,” said GenomeQuest CEO Richard Resnick. “Now, in addition to search, we enable them to capture and share their IP innovations within their company before they file patents, offering an integrated and unified view of their inventions against the broader IP landscape both inside and outside their organization.”

This new product launch comes on the heels of GenomeQuest’s initiative to add a manual curation step to its GQ-Pat database, increasing both breadth and depth of coverage of patents in the life science sequence domain. GQ-Pat is planned to have just under 600,000 patents and patent applications from authorities all over the world by the end of 2014, making it the most comprehensive database of such documents in existence. The company has also recently introduced its GQ-Pat SNP database, a collection of single nucleotide polymorphisms found in patents and in patent applications, particularly interesting to the diagnostics industry.
