Private companies that use open science / open source approaches in genomics

Via Josef Jackson:

  • DNAnexus was founded out of Stanford a few years ago and Google just invested in them. They are hosted the Short Read Archive which was de funded by the government in the US so the company has taken on the hosting duties for it and remains committed to keeping it open access.
  • Numedii, a company that searches public genomics data to find uses for drugs that can be repurposed.....(approved for some condition but can actually treat something else we wouldn't expect until we data mine the relationships).
  • NextBio is another commercial bioinformatics company that launched a free to use version for academics.
