WuXi NextCode, Geneformics Data Systems Collaborate on Data Storage, Access

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Geneformics Data Systems and WuXi NextCode have announced a collaboration on genomic data storage and transfer.

Under the terms of the collaboration, WuXi NextCode will integrate Geneformics' compression technology into its workflows.

Israel- and Sunnyvale, California-based Geneformics said in a statement that it can reduce raw file sizes by up to 90 percent. Pairing compression with storage and archiving tech, researchers can query large datasets efficiently.

The partnership "will enable a large range of customers to benefit from high-speed data transfer, efficient storage, and archiving of genome sequence data," Geneformics CEO Rafael Feitelberg said in a statement.

WuXi NextCode COO Hannes Smarason added that he expects collaboration to reduce the firm's data footprint.
