“Our customers in precision medicine have told us they need two key things: a unified view across genotypic and phenotypic information at the whole genome level for hundreds of thousands of samples, and the ability to lookup and query that data at speed,” said Dr. Paul Terry, CEO, PHEMI. “Oracle Big Data Appliance, combined with PHEMI Central Precision Medicine Edition, provides that. Customers can get interactive performance across the genotype and phenotype at scale, independent of the amount and types of data in the system.”

PHEMI Central Precision Medicine Edition on Oracle Big Data Appliance provides a turnkey, scalable solution to ingest, index, annotate and search extremely large amounts of genomic data and achieve sub-second query performance. Standard interfaces – like the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health API – provide integration with existing analytics tools, while PHEMI’s built-in data management and privacy functionality enforce rightful access to data.

“Between 100 million to 2 billion human genomes will be sequenced by 2025. Leading academic medical centers are gearing up for this data explosion by growing their data centers to fuel their precision medicine initiatives,” said Brad Tewksbury, Senior Director Business Development, Big Data Management, Oracle. “Oracle has a successful background in addressing data management in healthcare, and we look forward to extending our capabilities with PHEMI Central Precision Medicine Edition. PHEMI Central’s Precision Medicine Edition optimized on Oracle Big Data Appliance demonstrates an ability to handle the complex data types in precision medicine, enabling researchers and clinicians to not only take advantage of previously untapped data, but also realize faster processing times to help improve data exploration and analysis.”
