omicX is a global benchmark in big biodata analytics. Powered by machine teaching, its unique dynamic analytics ecosystem deciphers and analyses life science data. omicX’s disruptive approach capitalizes on collective scientific intelligence to empower life science practitioners to shorten and improve decision-making, accelerate scientific breakthroughs and go to market strategies. Accessible via web app, omicX is recognized as the most insightful life science analytics platform by a community of more than one million high-level users every year.
Our approach can be compared to Google Maps.
Google analyzes and maps streets, whereas we analyze and map the pathways used by life science practitioners in their published works.
Just like Google, we use a turn-by-turn analysis to identify the best and most efficient route to scientific breakthroughs. Our data is constantly updated in real-time, enabling us to identify possible new routes, and even build new bridges to explore areas and unleash the full value of big biodata.
omicX was founded by Arnaud Desfeux, PhD in neurobiology, in 2013. Today, the company employs 40 people. More information.
