Integromics to Develop Clinical Interpretation Software for NGS Data


Integromics, which develops software for genomics and proteomics, has partnered with researchers at the Galician Foundation of Genomic Medicine to development data interpretation tools for medical use of genomic data.

Under a €1 million ($1.3 million) grant from the European Regional Development Fund, Integromics and Ángel Carracedo's team at FPGMX plan to work on a project titled ApliClinics to create low-cost methods for analyzing genomic sequence data for clinical applications.

Carracedo's team was also a winner of the European Life Technologies' Ion Torrent Visionary awards.
