Indianapolis-based Indigo Biosystems Inc., a scientific software provider, announced Monday morning that it plans to add 63 jobs by 2015 as part of a $1.4 million expansion.

The company, headquartered at 20 East 91st St. in Woodland Corporate Park IV, said the investment went toward leasing, renovating and equipping 10,580 square feet of space in the office park. The space became operational at the beginning of October.

Indigo currently has about 30 employees and is hiring engineers, mathematicians, scientists and project managers.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it will provide Indigo up to $700,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $50,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans. The city of Indianapolis will consider additional property-tax abatements.

Founded in 2004 by Dr. Randall K. Julian Jr., Indigo spawned from the Ventures group of Eli Lilly and Co. and became an independent company in 2008.

The same year it received a $1.5 million grant, followed by a $250,000 award in 2009, from the state’s 21st Century Research and Technology Fund to develop software that allows web systems to automate the visual analysis of complex data.

Using advanced algorithms, Indigo’s cloud-based software enables analytical laboratories to automate diagnostic tests performed on millions of patient samples every year.
