Excellent job - fast and provided several options.
Great job taking the information from our two companies and designing a new logo that represents our collective "personalities".

We are an academic research lab, and need a logo for a suite of software packages focused on computational analysis of immune system-related "big data". Specifically, the data are DNA sequences (strings of A,T,G and C) of antibody receptors ("Y" shaped molecules). The target audience is bioinformatics programmers in academia or industry all over the world.

The name "Immcantation" is a combination of "immune" and "incantation". Immune because the software is related to analysis of experimental data characterizing the immune system. Incantation because several of the individual software packages in the Immcantaiton suite have names related to magic (e.g., pRESTO, Change-O). Thus, the logo might include a representation of an antibody (usually depicted as a "Y" shaped molecule, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibody) AND something related to magic. Some examples of the kinds of visualizations that are produced by the software are provided, but are not necessary to include in the logo.
I especially like logos that incorporate the name "Immcantation" into the image, rather than having the text next to a separate image.
