NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Cambridge, UK-based charity DNAdigest has launched a new social enterprise called Nucleobase to develop open source platforms to support genomic data access and sharing for research use.

Nucleobase's first product will be a collaborative data discovery platform that will launch in beta in the next six months. The platform, which will be free for academics, will help researchers access and use genetic data to transform scientific research, and will eliminate data hoarding and facilitate knowledge distribution, DNAdigest said.
