Yesterday’s and today’s technologies to run genomic analysis is quite complex, cumbersome and expensive. Originally a research field, it has evolved towards the industry but the tools remain scattered, difficult to work together and to understand, and are not easily interoperable between them. Moreover, data formats that compose the DNA analysis value chain change at each step and bring even more difficulties.
In this context, enabling large scale progress is a real challenge for the genomic industry.
At GenomSys, we believe there are many ways to simplify the genomic process from sampling to diagnosis, benefit from better collaboration with information sharing and improve compatibility amongst existing tools and formats.
The next series of articles will cover the main optimization elements that can be made along this long, fastidious and not fully industrialized process:
- Part 1 – The rise of Whole Genome, Whole Exome and virtual panels
- Part 2 – Bringing interoperability and compatibility
- Part 3 – Portability
- Part 4 – Giving back data to the owner
- Part 5 – Ease of sharing
- Part 6 – Reducing data footprint
