Powerful analytical tools to inform discovery and development

We offer bioinformatics applications for specialized markets including pharma, biotech, and cancer research

Specialized Bioinformatics Applications

Microarray and sequencing technologies are proving useful to increasingly diverse industries, requiring specialized bioinformatics applications for data analysis and interpretation.

We provide dedicated bioinformatics applications as well as the BaseSpace platform on which partners can build and deploy industry-specific analysis and visualization tools. Through these practices, we support a broad and growing range of bioinformatics applications.

Specialized Uses of Bioinformatics

Drug discovery and development programs are enhanced with specialized bioinformatics analyses. BaseSpace Cohort Analyzer and BaseSpace Correlation Engine support translational research programs by providing access to curated genomic data, allowing correlation of private experimental results and testing of new hypotheses. BaseSpace Cohort Analyzer maximizes clinical trial value by enabling researchers to assess the impact of therapies or drug effects in large subject populations.

Immuno-oncology Bioinformatics Tools

Improved informatics tools enable neoantigen discovery and tumor microenvironment analysis with Illumina sequencing applications.

Read Technical Note

Single-cell sequencing applications offer key insights into the functioning of individual cells, allowing a new level of resolution for biological researchers. Single-cell methods examine the genomes or transcriptomes of individual cells, enabling researchers to determine cell-specific contributions within complex tissues.

We provide a comprehensive solution for single-cell whole transcriptome analysis, including both BaseSpace Sequence Hub and partner analysis apps. BaseSpace Sequence Hub is used upon completion of sequencing to demultiplex base call files (BCL) to per-sample FASTQ files and perform secondary analysis with the BaseSpace SureCell RNA Single-Cell App.
