CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GenoSpace, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based informatics company, has launched a cloud computing platform to provide access to a variety of genomic and phenotypic data and designed to advance biomedical research and personalized medicine.

Recognizing that the rapidly falling cost of genome sequencing would make existing systems obsolete, they developed a cloud-based data storage and "software-as-a-service" platform based on a robust, scalable, and secure data model. A key element of the GenoSpace system is its collection of intuitive, informative, data-access portals that can address the needs of a broad range of users.

Everyone in medicine and biomedical research — from patients to pharmaceutical companies and everyone else in-between — can benefit from GenoSpace's unique service offerings."
Chairman of the GenoSpace Board of Directors, Joseph Boystak, added that "GenoSpace has tremendous commercial potential, including recurring revenue streams, by its offering clients and constituents high value-added products and services. This is the first company to create an information ecosystem that links together diverse users in ways that can benefit e
