Singular Genomics and Broad Institute Partner to Integrate Advanced Sequencing Technology with the Terra Data Platform
This partnership will help biomedical researchers access and analyze data from Singular Genomics systems and easily collaborate on the cloud using a secure, scalable and open source informatic platform
LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Singular Genomics Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMIC), a company leveraging novel next-generation sequencing (NGS) and multiomics technologies to empower researchers and clinicians, today announced the company is collaborating with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard to connect the Singular Genomics G4 sequencer to Terra, a data platform co-developed by the Broad Institute, Microsoft and Verily that connects researchers to each other and to the datasets and tools they need to achieve scientific breakthroughs. This integration between the two platforms will give researchers using the G4 sequencer seamless access to cloud-based data storage and analytical tools optimized for genomic data.
“We are thrilled to bring Terra’s advanced bioinformatic platform to Singular Genomics customers as a plug-and-play bioinformatics solution,” said Drew Spaventa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Singular Genomics. “To complement and leverage the G4’s accuracy, speed, flexibility and power, Terra will provide our customers with a seamless solution for secondary and tertiary analysis, data storage, and data sharing. We anticipate this will be the first of many exciting expanded offerings for G4.”
“With Terra, researchers are more easily and seamlessly able to develop insights from vast amounts of data and advance biomedical research,” said Clare Bernard, Senior Director of the Data Sciences Platform at the Broad Institute. “We are pleased to facilitate access to Terra as a comprehensive bioinformatic platform for Singular Genomics customers.”
Terra, developed by the Broad Institute, Microsoft and Verily is a secure, scalable, open-source platform for biomedical researchers to access data, run analysis tools and collaborate. Terra is actively used by thousands of researchers every month to analyze data from millions of participants in scientific research projects.
