Pedant-Pro™ Sequence Analysis Suite

The Pedant-Pro Sequence Analysis Suite is the most stable and dependable solution to genome annotation. Biomax offers two approaches to taking advantage of the high quality Pedant-Pro automatic sequence analysis system.

1) Pedant-Pro™ Sequence Analysis Suite

This is the enterprise version that, in additional to providing fast, comprehensive analysis of DNA and protein sequences, allows users to manually refine data for additional detail.


The Pedant-Pro databases constitute a powerful and concise sequence, gene and protein repository. When combined with BioXM™ Knowledge Management Environment, Viscovery® Data Mining Suite or the BioRS™ Integration and Retrieval System system, they create the ideal foundation for efficient research and development processes.

There are dozens of benefits for companies that use the Pedant-Pro suite. Here are just a few:

  • Save time and money in the sequence analysis process by using the high-throughput, industrial-scale Pedant-Pro grid-processing engine to analyze a maximum number of genomes, ESTs or other sequences in a minimum of time.
  • Create a company-wide gene index with manual annotation functionalities for distributed systems allowing all scientist on a project to access the active genomes easily.
  • Save training time and money by providing an easy-to-use graphical user interface which allows efficient work for IT personnel as well as laboratory biologists right from the start.

2) PEDANT Software as a Service Subscription

Biomax has launched the PEDANT™ Software as a Service, offering the Pedant-Pro Sequence Analysis Suite as a subscription service that allows researchers to easily load a sequence and receive a complete analysis. The subscription service (or pay-as-you-go) is ideal for shorter-term projects. For pros or newcomers, this service provides flexible access and efficient use of computer resources without having to invest in software, hardware, upgrades or maintenance.

Located and maintained at Biomax, the PEDANT™ Software as a Service, which provides the most complete and reliable microbial sequence analysis available, can now be accessed at any time, from any place:

  • Superior, comprehensive sequence analysis
  • Accessibility at anytime from any computer
  • Secure and confidential online environment
  • No additional computer resources required
  • Pay as you go
