7/8/2014 6:45:59 AM
ST LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Appistry, Inc., a leading provider of tools, software, and services that bring the power of genomics to next-generation medicine, today launched its inaugural Appistry Pipeline Challenge. The competition will provide $70,000 of software and hardware to aid one team in developing and executing an innovative next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis pipeline. Any U.S.-based researcher in any organization is eligible to enter the competition, which runs from July 7–August 15, 2014.
“If we’ve learned anything while helping our customers implement production-grade pipelines—pipelines capable of being used reliably and repeatedly in a controlled, clinical setting—it’s that they are difficult to build,” said Dr. Rich Mazzarella, chief scientific officer at Appistry and one of the judges for the Appistry Pipeline Challenge. “It requires expertise in everything from bioinformatics to high-performance computing, and not everyone has access to resources that can streamline development and deployment. Appistry is leveling the playing field by spurring creativity and helping one team transform its innovative idea into a solution that can drive clinical research and genomically enhanced medicine.”
