SBIR grant

Gencove offers low-coverage whole-genome sequencing and has developed imputation algorithms and informatics to extract useful information from the data.

The firm will work with investigators from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Virginia to validate its AIR system in CRISPR workflows.

The device can process high-volume sputum samples for PCR-based Mycobacterium tuberculosis detection at smear-negative, culture-positive levels.

With several SBIR grants from the NIH, the firm is also using its Liquid Scan platform to identify neonatal trophoblast cells in maternal blood samples.

Omics Data Automation, founded by creators of the Intel-OHSU Collaborative Cancer Cloud, has also created an open-source community for users of the Broad's GenomicsDB.

DiaCarta scientists will partner with the University of Florida Health Cancer Center to analyze blood samples from up to 500 cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy.

With an SBIR Phase II grant in hand, Michigan startup Parabricks is adding both speed and AI to variant calling as it eyes a Series A round next year.

In addition to the federal grant, the startup has received $125,000 from a Michigan technology fund to help commercialize its GPU-based analysis platform.

The company will use the funds to develop and refine proprietary algorithms for identifying more complex variants including translocations and inversions. 

The firm will use the funds to advance its high-throughput single-cell analysis platform to analyze heterogeneity in cell populations for research and drug discovery.
