GenomSys is a Swiss company developing technology powering enterprise-grade tools and applications for efficient processing and sharing of DNA data, enabling the progress of large scale and personalized genomic medicine.
Our new generation of solutions enable to securely store individual DNA on personal devices and share them easily to practitioners for diagnostics, pharmacogenomics, personalized treatments and other applications using genetic data to improve people’s quality of life.
All our products are compliant with MPEG-G, the new ISO standard for genomic information representation, offering advanced features of data access and handling as well as dramatic reduction of both storage costs and transfer time while respecting safety and privacy regulations.
We aim to commoditize DNA analysis, making genomic data streaming, sharing, analysis as easy as shooting and sharing digital videos.
Our Vision, Mission and Values
To enable the progress of large scale genomic medicine
Provide every organization working with genomic data with high quality enterprise-grade technologies.
We believe every individual should have access to personalized medicine, genomic diagnostics and treatments.
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.
