HELPING GENOMIC CUSTOMERS ACCELERATE DISCOVERY AND MEDICAL INNOVATION
Precision medicine, also known as personalized medicine, has evolved from a buzzword to a reality over the past decade due to breakthroughs in genomic research and DNA sequencing. As innovative and promising as genomic research and precision medicine are to the global health community, the analysis of genomic data still presents technological challenges to organizations and institutions that are the keepers of the large and sensitive data sets. Some of these data sets are large and costly to store, are difficult to integrate with other data sources, and require special parsing at the time of query.
Too often, researchers spend the majority of their time wrangling datasets and only a fraction of their time creating analytical value. Genomic assets are buried in a stack of VCF files, preventing on-demand, interactive data exploration and analysis that is critical for research and assessment applications. With the help of a cloud data platform such as Snowflake, organizations can take genomic data beyond research and development exercises and introduce analytical results into the rest of the enterprise.
