The Biomedical Information Age

The science and practice of medicine has undergone a fundamental change as a result of large-scale genome projects that led to the sequencing of a number of important genomes, including human and several mammalian, animal, plant and microbial genomes in the last 5 years. Ground-breaking innovations in discrete and separate domains and convergence of technologies from disparate fields are the driving factors behind the advancements we see in biomedical research.

PerlSource Informatics is positioned at the confluence of biology, medicine and information technology and was established to combine deep domain knowledge of biomedical sciences, genomics and discovery research with industry standard software engineering and design principles. The main objectives of PerlSource are to -

   § create practical, useful tools for the scientific community in the context of real-life, real-value biomedical problems that researchers face on a routine basis

   § provide customized and skills-based cross-disciplinary training to life scientists and computer scientists needed to acquire a firm understanding of the basic, underlying principles of each domain (molecular biology and information science)

   § provide industry and academic labs with specialized research, data analysis, management and consulting services to enhance R&D productivity
