Switzerland-based Sophia Genetics has expanded its collaboration with Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino, a health centre in Italy, by extending the use of its SOPHiA DDM Platform on Microsoft Azure.
This health facility, part of one of Europe’s largest university hospitals, initially adopted SOPHiA GENETICS in 2021 to enhance workflows and support research in various medical areas.
The expanded partnership will focus on utilising the SOPHiA DDM Platform to investigate homologous recombination repair biomarkers associated with ovarian, prostate, breast, and pancreatic cancers.
This cloud-based platform, powered by Microsoft Azure, leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyse large and complex next-generation sequencing (NGS) data.
According to the vendor’s website, SOPHiA DDM is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed for scalability, to facilitate the adoption of data-driven medicine.
Utilising AI, the platform is claimed to analyse diverse digital health data and generate insights in areas including oncology, with accuracy in handling complex modalities such as genomics.
