GenomSys is a Swiss company composed by engineers with extensive experience in research, development and project management in high-end domains and industrial segments such as digital signal processing, telecommunications, information security and avionics. Their experience spans from embedded software and firmware for low-power devices to hard real-time programming in safety-critical environments up to the design and integration of desktop and server applications in the digital multimedia and telecommunications market.
All the engineers are extensively accustomed to the ISO process of standardization, with experience in development and normative editing of audiovisual coding, systems and conformance testing standards.
The company is collaborating with bioinformatics institutions such as SIB/Vital-IT, the Pirbright Institute and other research groups focusing on efficient genomic information processing such as the SCI-STI-MM group at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, the Signals, Inference & Networks Research Group at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, the Distributed Multimedia Applications Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, and the Computational Genomics team at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
GenomSys has recently been granted a Eurostars-Eureka grant to develop a new generation of tools and devices for the efficient compression, storage, transport and manipulation of genomic data. The company’s Eurostars project MEGAPIPELINE, focuses on the development of MPEG-G Enabled Genome Analysis Pipeline.
