A full bioinformatics team to support or drive your projects
Automated computational pipelines for perfoming specific data analysis tasks may be the best option when the same analyses need to be repeated several times over time. This ensures fast turn-around times and consistent quality. Our software are custom designed for you, maintained by us, and can be run by either.
We start by specifying your needs, implement the pipeline using best practices, test it carefully and install it wherever you want. We train your staff to use it, and perhaps most importantly, maintain, troubleshoot and upgrade the software according to your feedback and needs.

Properly automating your bioinformatics pipeline will save you a lot of time and effort – and ensure consistent quality!
First we discuss your analysis needs to be able to propose the basic functionality of the pipeline. Once we agree on outline, the project starts with drafting the software specification requirements document defining the exact functionality of the pipeline. This will be refined with you to define the software exactly to your requirements.
We implement the analysis pipeline as a stand-alone software package that is fully customized to your needs from start to finish. Sky is the limit in what your new software can do, but commonly we implement some combination of the analyses that are featured in genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, and other data sections. Important parts of the implementation process are also finding the optimal solutions for necessary computing resources, file storage, databases and a customized user interface.
Each component of the pipeline is thoroughly tested individually using applicable real and simulated data. The whole pipeline is then tested to ensure compatibility of components, robustness and usability. Finally, we will test the pipeline after installing it to its final destination.
The pipeline can be run in a cloud computing environment, your own servers, with us, or locally pre-installed to hardware that we deliver with the pipeline, which ever option suits your purpose the best. If needed, we can also run your pipeline for you whenever you need it (when you get a new batch of samples, for example).
Options for installing the software:
Options for running the software:
When the pipeline is up and running, we sit down with your staff to show what the pipeline does. We will also write a description of its functionality and instructions on how to use it.
To ensure long life-span to the product, we provide constant troubleshooting, add new functionalities, and provide regular updates to keep up with new best practices.
