On February 2, 2012 it was announced that Integromics®, a market leader in IT solutions provision for life sciences in the field of genomics and proteomics, entered into a partnership with Professor Carracedo and his team at the Galician Foundation of Genomic Medicine (FPGMX), a recipient of the European Life Technologies ‘Ion Torrent Visionary Winners Award’, for the development of inexpensive solutions for clinical genomics.
This collaboration is framed in the R&D project entitled ‘Advanced analysis and interpretation of Low-cost next generation sequencing data for clinical applications’ (ApliClinics), which is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Spanish Government.
Thanks to the success of this collaboration, the first prototype for the analysis of genomic data is already available and it is being used for the analysis of large sample sets. Progress will be presented at the fifth edition of the conference ‘ Clinical Genomics and Informatics ‘ organized by Bio -IT World and Cambridge Healthtech Institute this coming 5-6 December in Lisbon, where Integromics will have an oral presentation within the session ‘ Analytical Tools ‘ and FPGMX in the session ‘Translation into the Clinic’.
