We aim to make the life of people who do bioinformatics simpler. Our goal is to help our users leverage high-throughput multi-omics data and fast-track drug discovery, precision medicine and bioinformatics research in the post-genomic era.
We collaborate closely with pharmaceutical, consumer goods, biotechnology and healthcare industries to help them get the most of out of their data and maximise the return on investment into data production.
Genestack was founded in 2012 by Dr. Misha Kapushesky, previously a Functional Genomics group leader for 10 years at the European Bioinformatics Institute in Cambridge, UK. Backed by JetBrains, a leading software company, Misha set up Genestack with a mission to address the biggest challenges of bioinformatics, which are draining the R&D efforts away from research and towards solving IT problems.
Since its inception, the Genestack team, composed of software engineers, bioinformaticians and biologists, has developed a system which introduces a paradigm shift in the field, by lowering the entry barrier to bioinformatics and enabling researchers to refocus their efforts on the science.
