Genomic data is one of the fastest-growing data types in the world. The insights it makes possible are transforming medical treatment for millions. However, critical challenges facing the life science Industry are the storage costs and transfer times that these large data require. At PetaGene we are addressing these challenges with award-winning software for the lossless compression of genomic data. Our software has been commercially deployed in HPC environments and across cloud platforms for the pharmaceutical industry, leading hospitals and other research institutions around the world.
Innovation is central to our ethos. We have invented techniques which surpass the compression ratios achieved by other well-known technologies by more than an order of magnitude. The kinds of data we compress constantly evolve and completely new data formats arise as sequencing and other technologies advance. If you are keen to join a innovative, vibrant company, which is solving critical real-world problems in the life sciences industry, please do apply.
