We were inspired to create our platform to simplify the exploration of human health, using genomics and other data, to quickly identify the probable causes of both rare and common diseases. By doing so we aim to accelerate diagnosis and optimise key stages of the development for more accurate treatments.
The convergence of large complex data sets, scalable cloud compute infrastructure, artificial intelligence and better-defined security frameworks prompted us to develop these technologies into one platform. We realised that there was an opportunity to bring these technologies together alongside our expertise with the intention of helping organisations normalise and align biological, phenotype and other health related data more efficiently and effectively.
