Access to data is still the main bottleneck for genomic researchers. Repositive has created a free online platform to solve this problem once and for all.
Repositive is building an online platform that makes genomic data from different sources easily searchable and accessible from a single portal. Its mission is to speed up genetic diagnostics and research by improving the visibility of and access to available data, thus helping researchers save precious time.
Ultimately, this will contribute to making the most of the data provided by patients and donors, who expect it to be useful for the community. The success of precision medicine might actually depend on the availability of this information. The co-founder and CEO of Repositive, an Illumina alumna, knows this — let’s dig in and find out how the company is changing the status quo in genomics research.
The Challenge: Data Access
Access to large numbers of relevant genomic datasets is necessary for research results to achieve statistical significance.
