Igenbio, Inc. announced today the addition of ‘ERGO Workflows’, a suite
of automated analysis pipelines that transforms raw sequence data into
actionable results. “Bioinformatics tools are typically command line
Linux programs requiring intensive computer resources. This presents a
major barrier to starting research. Igenbio’s aim is to make the best
analysis tools available to every researcher. That’s why we’re so
excited to announce ERGO Workflows, because it brings us closer than
ever to that goal,” says Vinayak Kapatral, President CEO of Igenbio, Inc.
ERGO is a professionally curated genomic data coupled with leading
scientific analysis tools customizable for data application and
management available anywhere in the world from a web browser.
Scientists and software engineers at Igenbio have developed an
easy-to-use interface for sequence analysis. Starting is easy – just
simply drag and drop files into ERGO. Then choose one of the
pre-configured Workflows and off you go. Each of ERGO’s workflows
implement academically-proven peer-reviewed algorithms, creating ready
to publish results. All data added to ERGO is protected by
state-of-the-art encryption in our secure cloud infrastructure. ERGO
Workflows are also accessible via application programming interface
(API). Researchers can use the ERGO’s API to further automate and
integrate analysis tasks into any existing environment. These advanced
work flow integrations along with the ERGO’s curated genomic database
enable industrial, academic, and medical scientists to discover and
develop bio-based products, and diagnostic biomarkers or compounds.
