NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – BGI and Sanguine BioSciences have teamed up to develop a database that combines genomic and clinical patient data in order to improve enrollment in precision clinical trials.

For their first project, the partners are planning to make searchable whole-genome data and electronic medical records from more than 1,000 rheumatoid arthritis patients accessible to trial developers. This, they said, will allow drug developers to make their trial cohorts more homogeneous, which will reduce their risk and cost and increase their likelihood of success.
