The Pistoia Alliance has selected three projects for the second phase of its sequence-services program, which aims to build a fully functional platform for analyzing and storing next-generation sequencing data.
The goal of the project, which launched in July, is to develop a sequence analysis platform that uses open source tools and is both secure and scalable (BI 7/29/2011).
The winning entries, which were selected from a field of 10 proposals, came from Constellation and GeneStack; Eagle Genomics and Cycle Computing; and Hewlett-Packard.
The groups are expected to present a proof-of-concept system at the annual Pistoia Alliance Conference that will be held on April 24 in Boston.
A commercial release of the platform is expected by mid-2012.
