Genotype knowledge base for pharmaceutical industry

A pharmaceutical company is using BC Platforms modules to study a specific disease. The company collects various formats of data from both in-house sources as well as from external collaborators and published material.

Data includes genotype data (SNP chip) produced at collaborating academic facilities, clinical data, and data on drug use and adverse side effects. The system is connected to an in-house computing cluster for imputing, statistical analysis for correlation between SNPs and drug efficacy, adverse effects and other clinical data. The system is also used as an effective internal communication tool between researchers.
