NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Bioinformatics firm Tute Genomics said today it is joining the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health.
The alliance is an international coalition formed to enable the sharing of genomic and clinical data and Tute will work with the alliance and its members to accelerate efforts to carry out its goal. The Provo, Utah-based company will contribute both "gold standard" and new technologies for the rapid identification of disease-causing variants, it said.
"With the help of Tute Genomics, the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health will continue to collaborate on ideas, identify and establish best practices, and enable interoperability," the alliance's Acting Executive Director Peter Goodhand said in a statement.
Among the other members of the alliance are the Broad Institute, Mayo Clinic, IBM, Google, and most recently, Biomatters.
