On February 15th Mikel Hernaez, the current Director for Computational Genomics at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) will speak about the ISO-based MPEG-G standard for genomic information representation at the Compression Workshop 2019 at Stanford University. Abstract: The MPEG-G standardization project is the largest coordinated international effort…
Enabling the digitalization of personalized medicine
We are developing a new generation of genomic information compressors exploiting the available expertise in digital information processing and entropy coding.
Efficient Data Access
We are working on a new genomic data format that supports most stages of existing sequencing and analysis pipelines, with a great advantage over the current practice that uses different file formats at each stage.
Genomic Data Transport
We are improving a genomic data transport layer which provide essential features such as streaming capabilities, incremental update of data and metadata.
