ISO MPEG-G

The Universal Language
for Genomics.

GenomSys contributed decisively to the development of the new ISO MPEG-G standard, the most interoperable and safe technology for genomic data handling.

Safer, more precise, easier to consult and share.
Thanks to this new standard, laboratories, clinics, and research centers can finally write, read and share data using a mutual syntax. The intuitiveness, reliability, and reproducibility of this technology takes personal genomics to the next level.

In its effort to support innovation and the progress of scientific knowledge, GenomSys is ready to provide free of charge Licenses for Development and Implementation Rights, to the extent they are used only for the purpose of experimentation and research with no direct commercial impact.
Such licenses can only be granted for the IP owned by GenomSys and do not cover any other IP owned by third parties. 

A license free of charge for limited time and a limited amount of forfeited royalties will be granted on request. Contact us to learn more.

Technology Benefits

International
Open Standard

The new genomic Standard enables everyone to write its own interoperable code and provides independence from any company’s strategy or continuing support.

Single
Unified Syntax

For all genomic-connected file formats (unaligned, aligned, reference, reports,…) to assure the highest data integrity and interoperability.

Efficient
Storage Size

Enabling cost savings for organizations handling large volumes of genomic data, particularly for whole-exome and whole-genome datasets.

Built-in
Security Elements

Strengthening privacy protection of sensitive individual genomic data: possibility to encrypt natively within the file and grant different access permissions by intervals.

selection

Rapid
Selective Access

MPEG-G enables selecting and decoding individual bases directly from the file without sequentially reading it, resulting in reducing latency running the analysis.

Advanced Genomic Analysis

GenomSys is widening the reach of advanced genomic analysis, the basis for any precision medicine application.

Since the development of NGS technologies (Next-Generation Sequencing), the cost of genome sequencing has been dramatically decreasing and continues to do so at a faster pace than microprocessors’ Moore’s Law. The past few years have hence seen the development of several methodologies and software to analyze the resulting data, however in proprietary formats, requiring transcoding to be processed and often with complex parametrization requirements and control panels.

GenomSys is further developing such tools to work directly with data in MPEG-G format, reducing pre-processing requirements, increasing efficiency and worldwide applicability. The resulting pipelines will also feature user friendly dashboards for parametrization and usage, and can be optimized to run in mobile environments, i.e., on everyone’s individual smartphone
