Curing diseases with Big Data
Our twin passions are Big Data and biology. We believe that through the analysis of biological Big Data, it is possible to achieve great scientific discoveries and revolutionize the way we care for patients. We are excited about the great promises that this new area of research holds to better understand biology and find new cures for diseases.
BigOmics is focused on one thing — helping biologists visualize and understand their omics data. Our mission is to create smart tools and make advanced omics analysis accessible to everyone. With our tools we want to accelerate the transition to data-driven precision medicine.
In December 2017, we won the third prize in the StartCup Ticino competition (now BoldBrain) for the best startup business idea with our vision to democratize big data analysis in life science research. At the end of 2018, BigOmics Analytics was founded as a spin-off of the Institute of Oncology Research. In 2019, we launched our first product the Omics Playground, a cloud-based self-service platform for visual data analytics of big omics data. We are based in Ticino, the sunny south of Switzerland.
