    Software: Genestack's new modules put biologists in control of omics data
    Submitted by Rachel Holdsworth; posted on Friday, May 11, 2018

    Frustrated that their discovery scientists spend more time looking for and preparing relevant omics data than analysing it, Genestack's pharmaceutical clients challenged the company to solve this industry problem. The result is two new modules for its biodata platform, which will both be previewed at Bio-IT World Conference 2018. The omics data manager module allows biologists to interrogate and visualise transcriptomics data at scale, and the expression data miner module supports users to collaborate on omics studies to speed up research and enable data re-use and meta-analysis.

    The expression data miner module accelerates not only the workflow, but also new target discovery, by enabling biologists to look across multiple sources of transcriptomic data to better understand gene function. A custom interface enables biologists to interrogate and visualise data without support of a bioinformatician, for example viewing the highest expressed gene or most specific gene for any organ or organ system. The module also makes it easier to work with multiple genes and tissues/cell lines/cell types in one flexible, super-fast interface.

    The omics data manager module provides a collaborative environment for capturing and organising study and sample-level metadata along with required sequencing procedures, produced raw data and secondary analyses. The result is a single point of truth for all omics metadata, including sequencing and analysis requirements. Metadata is cleaned up with validation rules and ontologies. Results are easy to find and use in meta-analyses.

    Genestack CEO, Dr Misha Kapushesky, will be discussing how creating a collaborative ecosystem of multi-vendor systems can offer the best solution for discovery science, in the Pharmaceutical R&D Informatics Track of the Bio-IT World Conference and Expo 2018 on Wednesday 16 May at 2.55pm.

    Genestack is also at booth 436, and the new modules will be available to trial in Summer 2018.
