Genedata Integrates its Analyst Software with TranSMART Platform

Premium

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Genedata said this week that it has integrated its Genedata Analyst software with the TranSMART platform, an open-source knowledge-management platform managed by the TranSMART Foundation that lets users integrate phenotype data and molecular information in translational research and personalized medicine projects.

The combined product provides a single platform for analyzing and sharing omics and clinical data that reduces the amount of time required to import, export, integrate, and format data for processing; removes error-prone manual steps; and more, the company said. Genedata will showcase the solution at the Bio-IT World Conference next week in Boston.

The TranSMART platform is also integrated with the GenoSpace system, which offers cloud power and software to help researchers and clinicians analyze, share, and store both clinical and genomic information; and with the BT for Life Sciences cloud infrastructure, a service that telecommunications company BT launched last year to support scientists from pharmaceutical, biotechnology, devices, and diagnostics companies, as well as those in academia and government
