Ananomouse’s Kinship Analysis Platform, Bloodhound, Selected for Emerging Technologies Conference

Following a competition by jury selection, Ananomouse Corporation has been asked to present its kinship analysis software platform at the MIT Technology Review Emerging Technologies Conference in Cambridge, MA. Billed as a showcase of the technologies poised to make a dramatic impact on our world, Ananomouse was selected from among hundreds of leading companies to present its software solution to a thousand of the leading innovators, inventors and technology decision makers in attendance.

Bloodhound™ is an enterprise grade solution capable of condensing very large collections of complete/partial (STR) genotypes derived from remains to a restricted number of consensus genotypes believed to reflect the many different victims. Designed from the ground up to solve the problems faced by forensic investigators addressing the problems of terrorist attacks, transportation disasters, criminal/terrorist databasing, and missing persons incidents, the software provides users an unprecedented level of analysis and ease of use, as well as wide area integration into existing systems.

Asked about the news of their selection, Ananomouse president David Sears states “We are very pleased to have received this level of recognition for the work that we are doing to improve the process of human identification for the international community. We have relied on an uncommon integration of the highest degree of science and information technology to produce what we hope will make that process simpler and faster, a benefit to both the investigators and the families of victims.”

Now in its fourth year, the Emerging Technologies Conference at MIT ( will be held September 29-30, 2004 at Kresge Auditorium on MIT’s campus. The event, which draws over 1000 senior technology and business executives, will feature keynote, panel and breakout discussions on emerging technologies that will fuel economic growth and dramatically change the future.
