FASTGENOMICS – THE PLATFORM FOR SINGLE CELL TRANSCRIPTOMICS

AI in life sciences: a genetic revolution

The cells in the human body follow a unique set of instructions encoded in their DNA. This DNA is the same in all cells, yet each cell in our body is specialized to develop certain shapes and to perform certain actions: blood cells carry oxygen, neurons transmit electric pulses, and macrophages kill bacteria to name only a few of the thousands of tasks that have to be carried out in our body. How is this possible?

The answer is that despite having the same basic information, the transcription of the DNA is different in each cell. The technique to make this visible is called single-cell RNA-sequencing. Genes within the DNA can be turned off and on, leading to the vast amount of cell types encountered in complex organisms. Accordingly, to understand how cells work and interact we need to understand their specific blueprints, i.e. which genes are active and which are not. This analysis is made possible with new computational powers driven by artificial intelligence.

 

investigating the basic modules of life

Using AI-based analysis methods we can now study each cell’s genetic information individually and understand the fine differences between cells – even detect completely new cell types – and understand how these cells develop. Insights gained from this technique will not only revolutionize the landscape of cancer genomics, immunology and whole-organism science. They will also continue to create a new global market of personalized medicine that is estimated to reach more than $5 billion by 2025.

Fastgenomics

FASTGenomics is the answer to the computational challenges posed by single-cell omics. It is an open online platform for single-cell RNA-seq and provides state-of-the-art data management and analytics. FASTGenomics enables you and your collaborators to share large data sets and use cutting-edge AI-based analysis methods with high demand on computational power. FASTGenomics offers an intuitive cloud-based interface without time-consuming installation.

Complex analyses made easy.

FASTGenomics is based on a collaborative research endeavour of Comma Soft AG, Bonn, and the LIMES Institute of the University of Bonn, Germany, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. The use of FASTGenomics is free for academic research.

Associated partners and networks

FASTGenomics is based on a collaborative research endeavour of Comma Soft AG, Bonn, and the LIMES Institute of the University of Bonn, Germany, that was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. Since we started in 2016, we have collaborated with several industrial partners and have successfully taken part and are still actively taking part in many research consortia. Based on this experience, we developed the FASTGenomics you know today.
