    Software: 'Bioinformatics is sorted, the pain is in management,' Genestack to say at Bio-IT World Expo
    Submitted by Rachel Holdsworth; posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017

    Genestack allows public and private data to be searched, analysed, visualised in one browser.

    When playing music on iTunes, the computing is invisible, and the same should be true when analysing biodata, Dr. Misha Kapushesky, CEO of Genestack, will argue at Bio-It World Conference & Expo. The company has developed a set of easy-to-use tools that allows the collection and aggregation of data across different sources – public and internal – and then organises, searches, analyses and visualises it without the need for sophisticated programming knowledge.

    "The role of the bioinformatician is disappearing," asserts Dr. Kapushesky. "For too long we have expected biologists to either learn programming languages like Python, or to use computer analysts, but now we have the tools to make this process invisible and this will free the life scientists to concentrate on interpreting the information."

    The company has now been going for five years and has many household names in its client portfolio. A major feature of Genestack's system is the flexibility it offers: it can be set up on the cloud or as part of an in-house system, adding value to legacy investments. It is not a closed system, so clients can add their own tools and analysis types.

    Dr. Kapushesky's presentation, "Addressing the Pain Points of Bioinformatics R&D in the Post-Genomic Era," will take place within the "From Translational To Real World – The Impact On R&D" strand of track 10 Data Integration, Analytics & Collaboration at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston on Thursday 25th May at 12:20 ([...]tics/).

    Genestack will also be on booth #237 and has been shortlisted for the Best of Show award.
