Data Coverage

Featuring over 400 million sequences, GenomeQuest’s GQ-Pat database is not only the largest in the world – it is also updated twice a week, ensuring you’ll always have access to the most thorough, accurate, and up-to date IP sequence data.


GenomeQuest offers a complete set of search algorithms, including BLAST, GenePAST, MOTIF and Fragment Search, each designed for a specific purpose. A single sequence search against the GQ-Pat database typically takes less than five minutes to complete. Alerts can even be set up to run automatically on a weekly basis, alerting you to new patent activity.


GenomeQuest’s new GQ Discover Result Browser combines powerful search with user-friendly visualization and analysis tools. At-a-glance alignment summary views and graphical results charts help you quickly make sense of large sets of search results, while extensive filters and grouping tools allow you to examine any combination of fields and drill down to individual results with just a few clicks. And the industry-leading GQ Classic Browser has been the gold standard in sequence searching for over a decade.


With GenomeQuest, you can quickly produce a variety of custom summary and comprehensive reports that can be easily shared with colleagues. Results and alignments can also be integrated with Aptean LifeQuest for full-text analysis or exported to formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and BizInt Smart Charts for inclusion into a search report or an opinion.
