TEL AVIV, Israel -- SQream Technologies announces that GenomeStack - the company's latest addition to its product portfolio - was named the winner of a bronze Stevie® Award in the Best New Product of the Year - Big Data Software Solution category in the 2015 International Business Awards.
GenomeStack, a big data software platform designed to automate genome researchers' workflow, replaces the old-school file-based, highly time-consuming manual process for storing and analyzing genome sequenced data. The platform enables a simultaneous post-sequence sample querying across many BAM files, with a click of a button. GenomeStack delivers previously unseen levels of speed, simplicity and scalability that helps speed up research timetables by up to 100 times.
