GenomSys works with its wholly owned subsidiary company GenomSoft to integrate MPEG-G compliant codecs in genomic data processing applications to enable institutions to fully benefit from the advantages of the MPEG-G technology from today, well before the official ISO standard release expected for early 2019.
As for the case of digital media (from mp3 to Ultra-HD TV), we expect MPEG-G to transform the genomic industry: for example it will open up the possibility of seamless analysis of remotely stored genomic data from an analysis center via streaming over the public networks.
Differently from any proprietary solution that may be found in the market, the MPEG-G open standard also supports interoperable approaches for privacy protection, guarantees an adequate maintenance and documentation of the code as well as a continuous technology evolution of the standard. For the first time, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and research labs will be able to access, process and share genomic datasets as simply as streaming and listening to a mp3 file or watching an HD movie.
Tools developed by GenomSoft include editing tools for the manipulation of genomic data in MPEG-G format and security applications enabling the implementation of mechanisms of anonymization, access control, integrity check, traceability, role segregation on top of MPEG-G compliant data.
