fios Genomics

Fios Genomics is a SME that provides an extensive range of data analysis services to Pharma, CROs and academia for drug discovery and development and applied research across all species. FIOS provides access to a combined resource of in-house bioinformaticians, statisticians and biologists working together to analyse and interpret genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic data. FIOS specialises in the analysis of high dimensional, multi-variant datasets and recognizing patterns and trends associated with a trait, disease or drug response. Using robust statistics and pathway analysis, the team provides analysis services of a deeper and wider scope to traditional methods. FIOS’ proprietary computer solutions allow the analysis of large datasets to be parallelised saving processing time and avoiding the complications that can arise when analysing data in batches.
