Bioinformatics firm Berg is combining multi-omics data from the Department of Defense's Center for Prostate Disease Research in search of biomarkers.

The new funding brings the total that the firm has raised in its history to €23 million, including €16 million in equity, and €7 million in debt instruments.

The system being developed would enable clinical decision-making based on genetic information about cancer cells and will leverage Fronteo's AI engine called KIBIT.

The new algorithm, called TOPSPIN, complements the company's MMprofiler test. It is considering making TOPSPIN-generated data available to its MMprofiler patients.

The firm, which is the target of several lawsuits connected with its IPO, said 452 GPS Cancer Tests were ordered during the quarter. 

The workgroup's goal is to encourage clinical labs to adopt uniform standards, so that clinical NGS test results can be compared among laboratories. 

Congenica will use the proceeds to establish its presence in the US and China, where it will court not only clinical genetics labs, but specialists, academics, biotech, and pharma.

2bPrecise is developing the needed ontology for its platform to enable clinicians to combine genomic and clinical data in their interactions with pediatric patients.
