“Edico’s founding mission was to provide a genomics solution for a post-Moore’s Law world. Our platform is based on an FPGA, which has enabled us to highly optimize our algorithms for genomics applications. Our timing was impeccable as FPGAs are now moving into the mainstream to address big data needs, and we’re now able to leverage the new infrastructure and ability to scale that these technologies provide. ” – Pieter van Rooyen, Ph.D., Founder and CEO, Edico Genome
ANALYSIS OF BIG DATA HAS BEEN A BOTTLENECK IN GENOMIC TESTING FOR YEARS. EDICO GENOME IS WORKING TO CHANGE THAT.
The analysis of data has always held back rapid genomic testing because of the time taken to work with so much information. In neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), where medical decisions have to be made quickly, this lengthy process can act as a major barrier in disease diagnosis. Alongside Stephen Kingsmore, M.D., D.Sc. and the Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine, we’re developing an infrastructure, called “The Ultra Rapid Method,” to transform the care of infants in NICUs and PICUs around the world.
