We are excited to announce the development of a visual genomic data portal to support the University of Utah. The University currently hosts more than 19,000 exomes and 8,000 genomes from over 7,000 different families. This includes data from the Pediatric Cardiac Genomics Consortium (NHLBI), the Undiagnosed Disease Network (NIH), the Sudden Death in the Young Consortium (NHLBI), the American Heart Association Children's Network (AHA SFRN), the Simons Foundation for Autism Research (SFARI) and the Childhood Liver Disease Research Network (NIDDK), among others. With the expectation that the data volume will continue to rapidly grow, the University needs to move beyond their current web-based genomic LIMS system to a scalable platform that can integrate with their bioinformatics pipelines, adhere to all authorisation and privacy requirements, and engage the dynamic research and clinical community in Utah.
Mosaic has been selected to support this community. As genomic data continues to grow in importance in both clinical and research projects, and the diversity of research projects based on these resources expands, the University has recognized the need for a highly visual and interactive platform. Such a platform is required to engage their large community of bioinformatic analysts, pathologists, clinicians, and biological scientists in understanding, exploring, and collaborating on their impressive genomic data resources. We are thrilled to have been selected by the University to fulfil this role, and look forward to a fruitful collaboration!
