Cross-border databases to tackle fragmentation, speed drug R&D Thirteen European countries have agreed to link up genomic databases in a bid to give boffins access to a research cohort of more than one million genomes by 2022. The declaration commits the signatories – including the UK, Finland, Estonia and Spain – to work together to ensure secure…
The next-gen of data management and processing systems
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.
