Curio Genomics/Daicel Arbor Biosciences MyCurio Bioinformatics Platform

Curio Genomics and Daicel Arbor Biosciences have launched the cloud-based bioinformatics platform myCurio, which resulted from a mult-year partnership between the firms. The platform consists of three modules. MyCurio Reports lets researchers review and visualize genome reference alignment, coverage, and variant calls for each sample; myCurio Insights enables them to interpret their complete dataset; and myCurio PowerTools provides bioinformaticians with configuration capabilities to optimize analyses.
