At the beginning of the year, we launched the Bina Science section on our website to showcase open source algorithms and peer reviewed journal articles that our team has produced. We are excited to announce the latest addition to our website, the Bina Library. We invite you to explore white papers and poster presentations, watch webinars and case study videos, and learn more about how our products can help you advance genomic discoveries. Simply choose the media type or topic at the top of the page to get started with discovering what we have in our library.
Advancements in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have produced massive number of short read sequences, making secondary analysis a challenging big data problem. In this seminar presented at Molecular Tri-Con 2016, Bina’s Senior Director of Bioinformatics, Hugo Lam, shared current approaches at Bina in assessing and improving the accuracy of NGS algorithms. Specifically, he touched on how Bina's research expanded the benchmarking toolset through the availability of a better gold set and a variant simulation and validation framework.
Did you know that the word “Bina” means insight, or wisdom? Our mission at Bina is to harness insight from genomics data to unlock the power of personalized healthcare by leveraging expertise in the field of computer science and bioinformatics. Today, enormous and complex datasets, generated by next generation sequencing technologies, have presented huge challenges for downstream analysis, interpretation and management of data. Roche Sequencing values the importance of a comprehensive, innovative informatics environment, and has made significant investments to integrating it with the rest of the offerings into a truly seamless, end-to-end sequencing solution.
Are you an engineer or a bioinformatics scientist looking for your next step? Learn why our team members joined Bina in our new video. We’re working on some of the biggest challenges at the intersection of life science, computer science and software development. Our team has a diverse background but a common desire to work on problems that can have a major impact on improving human health. Over the last year, we’ve profiled team members with a broad range of experiences, here are a few of their stories:
In previous videos, we’ve learned how to start a project and query variants in Bina AAiM™. In this segment, you will learn how the graphical tools in Bina AAiM™ can help you quickly visualize annotated variants. Let’s walk through these features in this week’s video.
You have mastered adding datasets and creating projects in Bina AAiM™. Now, let’s get to the fun part! In today’s video, we will show you how to quickly query and filter complex genome datasets with Bina AAiM™ using our simple user interface.
The Bina Annotation & Analytics Intelligence Module, or Bina AAiM, is a fast and scalable annotation solution for tertiary NGS data analysis. In this video, we will demonstrate how to set up a project so you can query and filter complex genome datasets.
