Next generation sequencing (NGS) revolutionized the understanding and discovery of molecular details in biological organisms. Scientists generate large amounts of omics data such as genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, 16S rRNA for various applications. However, scientists often face challenges to manage and make these vast data easily accessible for mining due to lack of user friendly and suitable tools. Hence, life science organizations are ineffectively spending millions of dollars for preparation and mining of genomics data and yet constrained on the speed of product discovery. Prior to developing advanced intelligence capabilities using these data, it is imperative to solve data management and mining challenges which will make organizations efficient and accelerate product discovery and thus innovations.
Application of rapid data mining and visualization will be demonstrated with several use cases with microbial genomics data through Loci, Karyosoft’s flagship enterprise/cloud platform. Loci, a smart data management and analytics platform, is customized for microbial genomics data to improve workflow efficiency and data privacy, as well as reduce costs and enable faster product discovery.
The benefits and value of these improvements will be highlighted, not only for scientists, but also for R&D Directors, and for CEO/CFO’s.
