Des Suisses inventent le Netflix de la génomique

La start-up GenomSoft trouve les clés de la médecine génétique pour tous grâce à la compression des données. Récit exclusif. Le coût du séquençage du génome complet d’un être humain est passé en quinze ans de 3 milliards à 1000 dollars. Et les 100 sont en vue. En parallèle, les généticiens ont découvert des milliers de marqueurs,…

MPEG-G Draft International Standard at MPEG 122 – San Diego

During the 122nd MPEG meeting in San Diego La Jolla, the MPEG-G standards reach Draft International Standard for transport and compression technologies The extensive usage of high-throughput deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing technologies opens up new perspectives in the treatment of several diseases and enables “precision medicine”. As DNA sequencing technologies produce extremely large amounts of…

About us

Who we are

Our team is composed of engineers with extensive experience in research, development and project management of high-end domains and industrial segments such as digital signal processing, telecommunications, information security and avionics.

Mission & Vision

We want to participate at the progress of a large scale genomic medicine through the standardization of a genomics-specific ISO standard (MPEG-G) for the representation and transport of genomic information, which would create the technology infrastructure of tools and applications that the market is currently looking for.

Our Strategy

We are working to improve genomic applications with advanced features of data access and handling as well as with a dramatic reduction of both storage costs and transfer time from sequencing facilities to storage and/or analysis sites.

The next-gen of data management and processing systems

Technology

We aim to create the technology platform needed to sustain high-performance compression, transmission and processing of genomic data, in order to reduce the storage size, increase transmission speed and reduce the cost of the bandwidth connecting the database to the processing facilities.

Better compression

We are developing a new generation of genomic information compressors exploiting the available expertise in digital information processing and entropy coding.

Efficient Data Access

We are working on a new genomic data format that supports most stages of existing sequencing and analysis pipelines, with a great advantage over the current practice that uses different file formats at each stage.

Genomic Data Transport

We are improving a genomic data transport layer which provide essential features such as streaming capabilities, incremental update of data and metadata.

A new standard of innovation

Projects

Our goal is to provide new systems and solutions for efficient genomic information processing, thus enabling large scale applications, reducing IT storage costs and facilitating data transport and sharing.

Partnerships

GenomSoft is currently working with several industries, research centers and academic institutions for the development of new solutions for efficient genomic data storage, transport and manipulation in the framework of international collaboration efforts.
