DNAstack Omics AI
DNAstack, a Toronto-based bioinformatics firm, has launched Omics AI software for omics and health research. Omics AI is a suite of three software products for creating standards-compliant federated networks and running analyses across them. The "Publisher" component helps maximize the impact of data "wherever it lives," the company said, making it easy to connect, organize, manage access, standardize, and register datasets with networks powered by the "Explorer" component. Explorer is a federated data portal that provides a unified user experience for finding, accessing, and searching across federated networks, and analyzing them with tools like the third component, "Workbench," which enables scientists to run analyses across distributed datasets. This includes the ability to perform federated learning with toolkits like integrate.ai, which train AI/ML models without moving sensitive data between systems. The end-to-end software suite is compliant with GA4GH standards with support for multiple cloud platforms, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud, as well as on premises, DNAstack said.
