About Our Organization

Our goal at Stirplate is to make science better by using existing technology to get around the issues scientists have when working with data.  There are a lot of inefficiencies in science that can easily be addressed by technology and we intend on being the solution.  From NGS to gene expression analysis, scientists put a lot of time and effort fighting with inefficient analysis tools that are different to use. We are building a brand new way for scientists to analyze their data that is ultra easy to use. Our goal is to empower scientists to use their data more efficiently.
