RNA-Seq is becoming the tool of choice for gene expression studies, as it can facilitate the investigation of phenomena beyond the reach of traditional microarrays, such as novel transcripts and isoforms, alternative splice sites, and allele-specific expression. Additionally, it provides greater coverage and higher quality genetic data than microarrays.
Golden Helix and Expression Analysis have built an analysis solution in which RNA-seq bioinformatic processes will be performed in a service-based cloud compute environment. This offering will address the obstacles of sequence data by providing cloud-based and integrated desktop analysis tools that are scalable, affordable, and simplified.
More information about the advantages of RNA-Seq is available on the EA Website »
Gabe Rudy is GHI's Vice President of Product Development and has been a team member for 8 years. Gabe is continually scouting the fast changing fields of both genetics analysis and software development. This in turn leads to curating features and infrastructure improvements so that the GHI development team can regularly provide our valued customers with top-of-the-line software releases to further accelerate their research. Gabe joined Golden Helix while still an undergrad student at MSU-Bozeman and then ventured to the University of Utah where he received his masters degree in Computer Science. Outside of the office Gabe enjoys taking advantage of what life in the Rocky Mountains has to offer: white water kayaking, skiing, and running. However, with a brand new addition to the Rudy family, Gabe truly loves spending time with his son and family.
