A small but powerful toolset makes sharing genomic data visualizations straightforward.

Unraveling Evolutionary Patterns

We are using genomics to uncover clues about species extinction, to learn how to save vulnerable populations and to see what this teaches us about our future on earth.

Identifying the Underpinnings of Disease

Diseases like cancer have a unique genetic signature that can be digitized, deconstructed and compared with healthy biology. It’s a clinical problem with a computer science solution.
