Add your own custom applications

Rather than transforming your data to fit into existing software programs, CloudBio can help you build custom web applications that meed your data analysis needs and get to insights faster.

CloudBio platform is built with data management and graphing libraries to support Life Sciences data analysis needs. 50-70% of the time it takes to develop an applicaiton goes towards repetitive activities such as file handling, data storage, data management, standard user interface, etc. Since CloudBio provides a proven and tested application framework, custom applications is extremely fast and cost effectively. Time it takes to add entirely new applications can be as fast as 3 days!

Analyze visualize data using R scripts

CloudBio provides you the power to extend analysis and visualization capabilities of the platform by adding existing R scripts or by creating new scripts. R scripts you incorporate process the data within your experiments giving you the ultimate flexibility to perform any type of analysis and visualization right within an easy to use interface.

Scripts you add can be private, shared among your colleagues, or public for use by for anyone in the community.
