R is reaching the 10'000 packages mark

At Quartz Bio we are using R for all our biomarker analyses. R is interesting for its open-source nature, but also for all the bleeding-edge analysis packages developped by its bioinformatics community.

Already 4 years !

This month we are celebrating our 4th year of activity.  We thank all our collaborators and clients for contributing to this success.

Meet us at the BIODATA world congress 2016

We will be attending the BIODATA world congress 2016 (26-27th October, Wellcome Genome Campus, Cambridge UK). Harnessing the power of big data in precision medicine. Alessandro Di Cara will be giving a talk on reproducible research in clinical bioinformatics. We look forward to meeting you. 



Quartz Bio publication -  Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Clustering in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases (by Thomas Charlon)


We are happy to annouce the publication of the manuscript "Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Clustering in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases" by Thomas Charlon, published in August in PLOS ONE. 

The article describes a clustering methodology aimed at removing the ancenstry bias in genetic analyses and uncovering disease-relevant traits. The project was conducted as part of the PRECISESADS consortium which is developping a new, biomarker-based, classification for inflammatory auto-immune disease.
