Seven Bridges, a biomedical data analysis company, and SolveBio have announced the integration of their complementary platforms for genomic data analysis. The integration of Seven Bridges’ platform for cloud-based biomedical data analysis with SolveBio enables biotech and pharmaceutical researchers to seamlessly transition from the analysis of large NGS datasets to clinical analysis and interpretation, speeding the progress of their precision medicine initiatives. This integration is available in Seven Bridges’ Public Apps repository, meaning any joint customer may immediately use this end-to-end workflow.
Seven Bridges, a biomedical data analysis company, has signed a Collaborative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to support two key research initiatives for the VA’s Million Veteran Program (MVP). The MVP is a national, voluntary research program funded by the VA’s Office of R&D, with the goal of partnering with Veterans receiving their care from the VA Healthcare System to study how genes affect health. Seven Bridges will serve as an industrial collaborator on the MVP, supporting the development of a hybrid cloud for large-scale data analysis, and a genotype-phenotype graph analysis engine.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the lead operations center for the Childhood Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC), and Seven Bridges, a biomedical data analysis company, have announced the joint development of Cavatica, a new cloud-based environment for securely storing, sharing and analyzing large volumes of pediatric cancer patient genomics data. Cavatica will support CHOP’s commitment to the White House Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) through the newly launched Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine (D3b), located at CHOP.
