BC Platforms provides data management solutions for the genetic and genomic research community. Our systems streamline the workflows associated with SNPs and microsatellite markers, genome-wide association and family-based linkage studies, and Next-Gen sequencing approaches like whole-exome and whole-genome analysis.
We simplify genetic data management by automating data conversion tasks, providing a powerful, dynamic, and integrated database environment. The platform facilitates advanced statistical genetic analysis of complex data by combining genotypes, phenotypes and marker maps to create efficient and high-performance workflows for over 30 academic software programs. With a full audit trail and collaboration features the project’s data is protected while administrators, researchers and analysts have easy and reliable access through a secure user-friendly web browser interface.
Our database systems are flexible, modular and designed to fit a wide range of needs and approaches. EpimiRNA faces the challenge of integrating and analyzing data originating from diverse methodologies. BC Platforms will provide easy to use tools for storing and querying miRNA and RNA-seq data, on top of already existing portfolio of NGS and GWAS tools. Conventional primary and secondary analysis tools for the new data types will be integrated to the consortium database platform, and exposed to the partners for everyday analytical and QC work.
The project will culminate in the network correlation analysis of all stored experimental data. Our expertise in bioinformatics, clinical and genetic statistics, biochemistry, and computer sciences should give us necessary leverage to tackle the computational problems involved. Our ultimate goal in EpimiRNA is to accumulate more experience of data integration and complex correlation analyses, and to build tool packages for these tasks. These tools can then be utilized in other projects dealing with similar, complex data analysis problems.
