The launch of SLIM Search, Inc. follows the recent release of new versionsof the product, SLIM Search Academic and SLIM Search Pro, complementing theSLIM Search Enterprise application. These new product offerings are availableto support the needs of the academic researchers in biotechnology,particularly in molecular cell-biology, as well as individual genomicsresearchers worldwide. Now, Cartesian Gridspeed's patented sequence searchtechnology is accessible to small research organizations as well as individualcontributors.

SLIM Search opens access for biological research possibilities thatpreviously were either impossible or just too tedious and time consuming tocontemplate. A major computational hurdle in genomics research has beensequence searching and the associated hardware necessities it requires.Through these new product releases, Cartesian Gridspeed overcomes thesecomputational hurdles by empowering a single work station running SLIM Searchwith the computing horse power of a multi-node supercomputer cluster.

A Revolutionary, Disruptive Technology

SLIM Technology is a lightning-fast, memory-efficient "disruptive"technology that is not only the enabling technology for the entire disciplineof personalized medicine but is also a unique, powerful research tool for oneof the fastest growing research fields. Cartesian Gridspeed's SLIM Searchopens new doors for research through a revolutionary advancement in the speedof information processing for genomic research. SLIM Search delivers greaterspeed performing up to 10,000 times faster than a fully optimized BLAST, whichis a standard tool of the industry. SLIM Search can assemble a human genomein half a day on a desktop workstation instead of months on a multi-milliondollar computer cluster using BLAST. SLIM Search can deliver daily updates ofan orthogonal-comparison, comparative-genomics database of every known gene ona single PC -- which might only be possible yearly on a hundred-node Linuxcluster running BLAST. In a typical genomics production environment, SLIM candeliver throughput improvements of 100 to 3000 times greater with equal orbetter sensitivity. These types of benefits are revolutionary inbio-informatics.
