WEB SERVICE PARTNER

AWS is a Lifebit partner, supporting the implementation and scaling of genomic & precision medicine initiatives worldwide.

The scale and sensitivity of genomic data bring unique challenges. Organisations are struggling to find the balance between security and usability of their data.

Lifebit has partnered with AWS to enable the next generation of clinico-genomic data management – a federated, cloud-based solution. This architecture enables researchers to collaboratively analyse data in situ and connect with disparate datasets in one unified place – their own secure environment, helping to scale-up collaboration capacity in genomics research, accelerating research impacts and breakthroughs in patient care. 

Users of Lifebit CloudOS on AWS will benefit from the near-infinite scalability of the world’s largest public cloud. Custom-build the computational infrastructure to cater to your project needs and advance precision medicine today.

OECD REPORT

Building sustainable, scalable platforms in the cloud

Lifebit contributed to a policy paper published by the OECD in February 2021 on the technical, legal and business challenges arising from genomics and biobanks. Specifically, we gave insight on how cloud-based, federated technology can address these challenges, describing our recent work with Genomics England’s 135,000-strong cohort of patient whole genomes.
