I am a Bioinformatics Scientist at Bina Technologies, part of Roche Sequencing. A little over 10 years ago, the Human Genome Project was complete after 10 years and $10 billion, which sequenced 3 people. It was a monumental achievement unthinkable only a few years prior. Today, we can sequence a genome for roughly $1000 in a single day. However, sequencing output outpaces Moore's Law, and data analysis and management has become the bottleneck of genomic studies. Bina Technologies is solving the problem, in order to fully realize the potential of modern genomics and personalized medicine.
Check out SomaticSeq, a machine learning algorithm we have developed at Bina to detect somatic mutations in cancer sequencing. SomaticSeq has placed Bina No. 1 in INDEL and No. 2 in SNV in the Stage 5 of the ICGC-TCGA DREAM Somatic Mutation Calling Challenge. Our paper describing the method is an Editor's pick in Genome Biology. There is also have a quick 8-minute video explaining the methods.
