Genetics-research company picks IBM

GeneFormatics, a company that helps investigate the structure of biological molecules called proteins, has named IBM its preferred technology partner, the companies plan to announce Tuesday. GeneFormatics' genetics-research equipment will be based on IBM's DB2 database software, "Shark" Enterprise Storage Server and Linux and Unix servers. IBM has embarked on a major push to embrace life-sciences research; genetics in particular is constrained by how fast researchers can perform computational tasks such as sifting through genes or predicting what proteins genes create.
