GenomSys, the Swiss startup disrupting genomics information handling closes a CHF 9.3 million Series A investment round
GenomSys, a software company which develops ISO compliant technology for efficient processing and sharing of DNA data, announced it has completed its series A investment round. The company raised CHF 9.3 million in this financing, driven by the accelerating development progress of its MPEG-G-based solution for DNA data processing.
The MPEG-G standard is currently the largest coordinated and international effort addressing the problems and limitations of current technologies and products towards a truly efficient and economical handling of genomic information. MPEG-G utilizes the latest technology to compress and transport sequencing data for complex use cases that are currently not supported by existing formats.
HIMSS Insights speaks to Mikel Hernaez, director of computational genomics at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois, who is part of a standardisation initiative, in which the Moving Picture Expert Group (MPEG) and the ISO Technical Committee 276 are joining forces: “Our goal is to produce MPEG-G, a…
