The Repositive Platform

Repositive has launched the full version of its free online data platform, which has been in beta since last year. The platform offers access to more than 750,000 datasets on DNA and RNA-sequencing, epigenetics, and the microbiome. It also features tools such as Boolean and predicated search capacity, improved curation of search filters, the ability to browse through datasets without a keyword search, and options for third party sign-up and login through Google+ and LinkedIn. The company further intends to launch specialized collections of data starting with the Chinese Control Data — a dataset that contains information from GenomeAsia, SGVP, GigaDB, and the Kadoorie BioBank — which will be available this month. Repositive plans to release specialized collections of DNA methylation, RNA expression, PDX molecular data, and human gut microbiome datasets later this year.
