Lifebit Biotech CloudOS

Lifebit Biotech has introduced Lifebit CloudOS, a cloud-native, federated genomics operating system that supersedes the beta-release Lifebit Deploit from 2017.

The company said that this system automates analysis and the application of machine learning, removing a major barrier to precision medicine, population, genomics, drug discovery, and direct-to-consumer genetics progress.
