the Genevia team and our bioinformatics lab

We have made significant efforts to put together the three main components of any bioinformatics lab: analysis pipelines, computational infrastructure and professional bioinformaticians.

Much like in molecular biology research where you need robust laboratory equipment, validated experimental protocols, and trained molecular biologists, there are similar requirements if you want to achieve the same scientific level in bioinformatics. Modern omics platforms, such as sequencing machines, quickly produce data sets that necessitate file storage, computing servers and cloud computing resources. Data analysis pipelines that will give instructions to the hardware on how to translate the data into reliable results are also necessary. In order to develop and use the software correctly, and interpret and visualize the results, any bioinformatics lab manager needs a team of bioinformatics professionals with complementary skills.

Bioinformatics lab's pipeline

Validated analysis pipelines

The public domain is full of open-source bioinformatics tools that get the job done if used properly.

We have come to realize that no two projects are completely alike. Therefore, for every new project, we develop an analysis pipeline combining existing public and proprietary tools in order to fully match our clients’ needs and expectations. Having been doing this for years has resulted in an impressive toolbox of validated modules. This enables us to rapidly assemble a robust computational pipeline that produces all the results that our clients require for their research.

Efficient computational infrastructure

Our file servers, a computing cluster and additional cloud computing resources reduce turnaround times for our clients

No bioinformatics lab can run efficiently without securing proper computational infrastructure that can deal with the large data sets produced. Our local servers guarantee safe and fast processing of our clients' sequencing data, while flexible cloud computing options mean that we can align large batches of whole genome sequencing data without having to wait for the results to arrive in the hands of our bioinformatics team.

Bioinformatics lab cluster

The Genevia bioinformatics team

Bioinformatics today is such a complex science that making it to the top requires a mix of professionals with complementary competences

Our bioinformatics lab consists of bioinformaticians, data scientists, biologists and project managers working together. For each project, we assemble the optimal team that will develop new analysis modules, run them, perform the statistics, and draw beautiful figures for the resulting paper. The project team is coordinated by a project manager who plans the analyses with different experts and our client, delegates tasks internally and handles all communication and reporting of the results with our client's team. Aside from the tech teams, our sales people roam the world meeting people and helping them find the optimal solution for their research needs, as well as bringing new analysis ideas back home to be implemented into solutions for future clients.
