The Jackson Laboratory is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution with more than 2,400 employees. Its mission is to discover precise genomic solutions for disease and empower the global biomedical community in the shared quest to improve human health.
As the world's enterprises accelerate their digital transformations, they discover that next-generation applications must deal with data that are bigger and faster at the same time, outstripping the capabilities of today's infrastructure. MemVerge's mission is to deliver a new architecture, called Big Memory Computing, that converges memory and storage, thereby removing the storage I/O bottleneck once and for all. MemVerge's Memory Machine™ Software virtualizes heterogeneous memory hardware into a software-defined memory service that has both high capacity and high performance. MemVerge ZeroIO™ In-Memory Snapshot technology captures the state of running applications, and can be used for application roll-back, cloning and high availability. The results are new levels of productivity, performance, availability, and mobility for today's data-centric applications, both on-premises and in the cloud.
Oxford University Press publishes a range of computational biology journals, including Bioinformatics, Bioinformatics Advances, GigaScience, Nucleic Acids Research, NAR Genomics and Bioinformatics, Database, Briefings in Bioinformatics, Briefings in Functional Genomics, and more. Bioinformatics publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles with its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology
PerMedCoE is Europe's HPC/Exascale Centre of Excellence for Personalised Medicine that leverages clinical and omics data to revolutionise disease treatment at an individual level. By optimising core applications and integrating them with new HPC/Exascale platforms, the project allows for the simulation of cell-level models for personalised treatments. Through comprehensive use cases, training, and collaboration with the biomedical consortia, this EU-funded Center of Excellence bridges the gap between molecular and organ-level simulations
At Pfizer, we apply science and our global resources to bring therapies to people that extend and significantly improve their lives. We strive to set the standard for quality, safety and value in the discovery, development and manufacture of health care products, including innovative medicines and vaccines. Every day, Pfizer colleagues work across developed and emerging markets to advance wellness, prevention, treatments and cures that challenge the most feared diseases of our time.
The Royal Society journals Journal of the Royal Society Interface and Interface Focus regularly publish high-quality cross-disciplinary research at the boundary between the physical and life sciences, including computational and systems biology. We welcome research, reviews, and proposals for themed issues from scientists working in these areas. Both sides of the boundary are considered equally, and Journal of the Royal Society Interface and Interface Focus are some of the only journals to cover this exciting new territory. https://royalsociety.org/journals/
The SFBI is the French Bioinformatics Society. Its mission is to promote interdisciplinary research in France at the interface between Molecular Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Physics.
