Bio::What did you say??
We often get asked about the company name...so here is a brief explanation:
Bio is a Greek prefix meaning 'life' and Neos is a Greek lexicon meaning 'new'. Therefore, bioneos may roughly be translated to mean "new life". The two colons represent namespaces in various programming languages including Perl and C++. This is part of the company name because Bio::Neos, Inc. represents a union of biological and computational knowledge. Through experience and diverse backgrounds, the company will provide "new life" to genetics-related and bioinformatics software, especially in the field of target identification.
