Euformatics Joins Global Alliance for Genomics and Health

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Finnish bioinformatics firm Euformatics today said that it has joined the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health.

Euformatics provides tools for interpreting genomic data and to assist physicians and molecular genetics laboratories in delivering precision medicine, it said on its website. Last month, Euformatics and BC Platforms announced a strategic partnership to embed Euformatics' OmnomicsNGS software in BC's Enterprise solution in order to improve the analysis of the genetic basis of diseases.

The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health seeks to accelerate genomic medicine to improve human health. Earlier this week, SRA International said that it had joined the alliance.
