In the global research community, more and more data is being generated at a faster pace than ever before. Because of this the bottleneck in scientific research is no longer the lab work but has become the data analysis. This is especially true in the field of next generation sequencing, where throughput has drastically increased and costs have fallen significantly.
In order for researchers to still be able to perform their own analyses, they need to become skilled in bioinformatics and have access to a compute environment able to handle such large datasets.
BISC Global has recently launched a software platform, called the Online Pipeline Platform (OP2) which allows researchers worldwide to easily analyze their data without requiring any bioinformatics experience and without access to a compute environment.
With OP2, researchers can now run a selection of state-of-the-art NGS analysis pipelines on their data in a fully automated way. This way researchers can have their results in a matter of minutes or hours rather than weeks or months, allowing them to start interpreting their data and progress their research to the next level.
“We are very pleased to announce the launch of our OP2 platform. With this platform we enable researchers, both in industry and academia, to analyze their sequencing data at the touch of a button, without the need for any bioinformatics skills, servers or cloud infrastructure. By opening the platform to all researchers, using a simple pay-per-sample model, we believe our OP2 platform will help a lot of reseachers make sense out of their data,” said Maarten Braspenning, founder and CEO at BISC Global.
