Azyxxi will be used to assimilate large quantities of diverse data, including electrocardiograms, magnetic resonance imaging scans, dynamic angiograms, ultrasound images and, ultimately, genomic information, providing a visual gateway for instant access to the information, and allowing researchers to make and prove their hypotheses within minutes instead of months.
