[EUREKA/Eurostar2] Partners to be sought for collaboration on development of NGS (Next Generation Sequencing)-based Genome Data Processing Hybrid Cloud

Country of Origin: South Korea
Reference Number: RDKR20180830001
Publication Date: 26 November 2018


A Korean company provides Hybrid Genomics Cloud, which is the optimal cloud computing environment for genomics service. The technology allows to create and run various genome analysis pipelines. It also contains distributed storage, which stores a large amount of genetic data efficiently. Under Eureka/Eurostar2, the company would innovate the existing technology for more applicable on genomic analysis platform with partners, such as genomic researchers or analysts.


South Korea-based software company established in 2017 has possessed the technology of architecture design and related system of a distributed processing system for large-scale data based on computational biology or bioinformatics.

The company wants to collaborate with partners to innovate their genetic analysis platform that has never been found anywhere in the world. EUREKA / Eurostar2 will lead their platform to have more updated functions, such as listed below.

1) Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) distributed clustering technology for high capacity of genetic data
2) Lightweight container-based Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) genome analysis pipeline technology
3) Multicloud-based NGS genome analysis platform technology
4) Distributed graph database technology for storage and additional analysis of high-capacity genomic data

By submitting the proposal of Eureka/Eurostar2, the four specifications listed above should be developed on the existing genomic analysis with partners of genomic researchers or analysts under research cooperation agreement.

Finally, their goal is to run analysis in the most efficient and cost-effective manner using various clouds through their innovative software platform, thereby developing a platform to create a new added-value service by submitting the proposal of Eureka/Eurostar2 under research cooperation agreement.

Deadline for EOI: 14 Aug 2019
Deadline for Call: 14 Sep 2019
Project Duration: 104 weeks

Advantages and Innovations
