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.

Uniting Global Communities

We have led the effort to define genomics data-sharing standards by co-founding the GA4GH, with more than 450 organizational members from more than 40 countries

Platforms for Life-Saving Treatments

We can match individual tumor RNA with tumors in the largest public cancer genome database in the world — uncovering potential treatment options for patients with “incurable” cancer.
