JMP advances life sciences analysis in new releases
JMP® Genomics adds linkage maps; JMP® Clinical automates creation of patient narratives
CARY, NC (12. Sep. 2011) – Life scientists gain new and enhanced visual data exploration and analysis capabilities with new releases of JMP Genomics and JMP Clinical software by SAS, the leader in business analytics. Both solutions, announced today, dynamically link SAS® Analytics and JMP graphics to provide a comprehensive picture of research results.
JMP Genomics 5.1 adds a suite of new tools for constructing and visualizing linkage maps, used to improve agronomic crops and in animal breeding programs. JMP Clinical 3.1 automates the creation of patient narratives for each subject in a clinical trial who experiences a serious adverse event. The software saves the narratives as a Rich Text Format (RTF) file for further configuration and inclusion in the Clinical Study Report.
In addition, the new JMP Genomics release includes:
JMP developed the linkage mapping tools in response to a request by scientists with the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS). Eric Jackson, PhD, an award-winning USDA-ARS research molecular biologist and JMP Genomics user, leads the Collaborative Oat Research Enterprise, a global research partnership of scientists, growers and millers dedicated to improving oat nutrition through genomics. The new capabilities save time by calling SAS algorithms to order markers along a genome, said Jackson, who recently was recognized by the USDA-ARS as an Outstanding Early Career Research Scientist "for revitalizing oat genomics research … through exceptional scientific creativity and partnerships."
In addition to the automated patient narratives, JMP Clinical 3.1 also:
“JMP Clinical doesn’t replace the statistician or the SAS programs,” says Mark Williams, Vice President and CIO of Applied Clinical Intelligence, a contract research organization serving the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and health care industries. Rather, it “bridges the clinical-statistical divide.”
JMP is a business unit of SAS, established in 1989 to create interactive software for desktop discovery analytics. John Sall, SAS co-founder and Executive Vice President, also heads the JMP business unit.
