Public open data is crucial for research in the life sciences industry. ELIXIR’s latest report zooms in on that and on the role SMEs and start-ups play in building an open data ecosystem.
With the release of version 4.00 of our DISQOVER platform, we bring the power of Visual Analytics to your data discoveries. The deep integration with DISQOVER’s core linked data philosophy creates a unique offering, and allows you to endeavor data exploration journeys that were previously unthinkable.
One of the key types of information in DISQOVER is human genetic variations and their links to genes, diseases etc. We recently integrated two new data sources: 1000 Genomes and gnomAD. These data sources include human variation and genotype data derived from a large set of human individuals.
We’re glad to have Paul Vauterin join ONTOFORCE as Vice-President Visual Analytics. Paul’s an expert in software product creation and management, including vision, strategy and execution for biotech, human diagnostics, data mining and visual analytics applications.
Integrating an organization’s internal data is challenging. It requires strategic vision by the organization’s leadership and an open mindset on different levels. In our experience, establishing such a solution has a greater chance of success if stakeholders quickly and easily notice the benefits. Small pragmatic initiatives with few data sources that solve a limited number of use-cases, can demonstrate how things can improve for the whole organization.
