About Us

Genevention is a bioinformatics company that brings together long-standing experience in semantic integration of biomedical big data, cutting-edge deep data analyses and sharp visualizations for interactive data exploration. Our aim is to combine these technologies to allow biomedical researchers, pharmaceutical engineers and bioinformaticians to discover disease-specific biomarkers, reveal novel correlations in datasets across different experiment types and easily enrich experimental data with information from the literature and external databases. Our services include the custom-tailored development of semantic data integration systems, the provision of expert-curated biomarker knowledge bases based on high-throughput-omics data and the investigation of biomedical big data using artificial intelligence approaches.
