GA4GH – MPEG, Basel 3rd October 2018 Call for Contributions The amount of genome sequencing data generated day by day is either comparable or larger than other big data problems. Shrinking costs of data alone do not provide affordable solutions to the ambition of making genomic medicine common practice. However, storage costs are not the…
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.
