Eagle Genomics Teams with Cycle on Sequencing Informatics

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Eagle Genomics said today it will work with Cycle Computing to develop a proof-of-concept system for sequencing data analysis, and the companies will use a $50,000 grant from the Pistoia Alliance to help fund the effort.

Eagle said that it will collaborate with Cycle to develop a bioinformatics system that will include add-ons for analyzing data as well as protections that ensure that customer data will be kept private and confidential.

The Pistoia Alliance is a non-profit launched by life sciences firms, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that seek to improve the interoperability of research and development business processes.

The partners will harness Cycle Computing's experience in securing and scaling large-data applications in the cloud to develop a robust, scalable, adaptable solution that will meet the needs of a majority of Pistoia's members. They plan to have the sequencing analysis platform ready for commercial release by mid-year.
