Cambridge, 11 July 2016 ... Repositive, a software company developing novel tools to improve access to human genomic research data, has expanded its team ahead of a new launch of its platform.
The new appointments include Richard Shaw, bioinformatics scientist, Ruben Paz, backend developer and Dennis Schwartz, bioinformatics developer. This brings the Repositive team to a total of 14 employees. The new additions come as Repositive prepares to launch Version 2.0 of its platform which will incorporate a number of new features and specialised data collections to cater for specialist genome analysis needs.
The Repositive beta platform makes searchable over 42,000 data sets, from around the world. The growing development team will continue to expand the Repositive worldwide data catalogue, along with the growing user base of international groups of bioinformatics and genomics scientists, who benefit from fast access to the data they need to power their research.

"These new appointments strengthen the team in a number of key areas and will allow us to scale up our data indexing and data cataloguing capabilities, and develop the Repositive platform as the go to place for finding and accessing genomic data for preclinical research.”
