BioNumerics version 7.6.2 released

We are pleased to announce the latest update of our BioNumerics software: version 7.6.2. As you have gotten used to with previous updates, this version once more has a series of exciting new features and improvements:

  • A new online plugin distribution mechanism will allow you to benefit sooner from our latest plugin developments. Downloading and installing a plugin is as easy as ticking a check box – no administrator rights required!
  • The E. coli genotyping plugin is the first in our series of organism-specific functional genotyping plugins. It predicts O:H serotype, virulence and antibiotics resistance from E. coli genome sequences with virtually no set-up.
  • wgMLST just got easier with a simplified WGS tools installation wizard, curator-defined default settings and an example template for importing fastq.gz files as sequence read sets.

A complete overview of all new features and a download link can be found on the BioNumerics update download page.

How to upgrade?

This update is free of charge for all our current BioNumerics Seven customers. No new license string is needed for version 7.6 users, but version 7.0, 7.1 and 7.5 users will need to request a new license string prior to downloading the software!

Customers that have an older BioNumerics version can request a quote for an upgrade of their existing license.
