SINGAPORE : The Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) is working with a leading US—based provider of data solutions to boost efforts to improve public health.

It has launched a research collaboration with Appistry to develop a pipeline to analyse next—generation sequencing data more effectively.

GIS, which is an institute of Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), announced the collaboration with Appistry on Thursday.

Appistry is known for its high—performance computing and analytics to manage and store "big data", which is a collection of large and complex data that needs special tools to process and manage.

Its technology will enable GIS to take a huge amount of data and rapidly advance its analytics, as well as use its science to improve public health.

Both sides aim to speed up the development of research methods and discoveries in human genome analytics and genomics.
