BeDataDriven B.V. — Providing Products and Services in Analytics

Published on January 13, 2015

Horizon 2020 is the European Union Research and Development program with a budget of nearly €80 billion over seven years (2014—2020). Late 2013, a consortium of 10 partners came together to formulate a proposal for a project called Statistical multi-Omics UNDerstanding of patient samples (SOUND).

The objective of the project is to enable European and international researchers to dramatically increase statically informed use of personalized multi-omic data in genomic medicine. A major challenge will be to provide the clinicians with a high-performance computing infrastructure that enables easy application of advanced statistical modeling on extremely large data sets. Renjin, the interpreter for the R programming language built for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) by BeDataDriven, will play a central role in tackling this challenge.

The members of the consortium are:

  • European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg, Germany (coordinator)
  • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC), Seattle, USA
  • Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ), Zürich, Switzerland
  • University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
  • Ludwig-Maximilians University of Münich, Germany
  • University of Lisbon, Portugal
  • BeDataDriven, the Hague, Netherlands
  • Heidelberg University Medical School, Heidelberg, Germany
  • Hospital of the University of Zürich, Switzerland
  • Technical University of Münich

Start of the 3-year project is foreseen for the second half of 2015. Contact us for more information on the project and BeDataDriven's involvement.
