  • Patent number: 10409791
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for communicating and storing data that may include genomic data. In certain embodiments, a sample genome may be stored and/or communicated as a list of variants relative to a reference dataset. Transmission and/or storage of a set of variants relative to a reference genome may allow for more efficient storage and/or communication of the sample genome. Systems and methods are further disclosed that allow for the efficient selection and computation of a reference dataset used to represent a set of sample genomes.

  • Publication number: 20190206515
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for facilitating trusted handling of genomic and/or other bioinformatic information. Certain embodiments may facilitate policy-based governance of access to and/or use of bioinformatic information, improved interaction with and/or use of distributed bioinformatic information, parallelization of various processes involving bioinformatic information, and/or reduced user involvement in bioinformatic workflow processes, and/or the like. Further embodiments may provide for memoization processes that may persistently store final and/or intermediate results of computations performed using genomic data for use in connection with future computations.

  • Patent number: 10271197
    Abstract: A system for publishing digital content is described which, in one embodiment, includes a beacon device associated with a first user configured to transmit identification information and information indicating its current position. A browsing device includes a display configured and adapted to display to a second user a representation of a local geographical area, and to selectively display to the second user content information associated with the first user, based at least in part on whether the location of the beacon device is within the local geographical area.

  • Publication number: 20190065702
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that protect intellectual property rights in connection with 3-dimensional printing processes. In certain embodiments, an object a user would like to render with a 3-dimensional printing device may be compared with one or more managed objects having certain associated intellectual property rights. If the object is found to be similar to a managed object (e.g., similar in shape, function, composition, etc.), policy associated with the managed object may be enforced in connection with rendering the object. In this manner, intellectual property rights associated with the managed objects may be enforced.

  • Publication number: 20190065680
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for facilitating trusted handling of genomic and/or other sensitive information. Certain embodiments may use a virtualized execution environment to execute code and/or programs that wish to access and/or otherwise use genomic and/or other sensitive information. In some embodiments, data requests from the code and/or programs may be routed through a transparent data access proxy configured to transform requests and/or associated responses to protect the integrity of the genomic and/or other sensitive information.

  • Publication number: 20190042694
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for communicating, storing, and/or analyzing data that may include genomic data. In various embodiments, unaligned genomic sequence read data and/or portions thereof may be stored and/or communicated as a list of variants relative to a particular reference associated with a reference motif identified in the genomic sequence read data. In further embodiments, quality score information associated with a genomic dataset may be analyzed and and/or communicated as quality score parameter information. Additional embodiments may facilitate relatively efficient analysis of unaligned genomic sequence read data using metadata associated with reference motifs identified in the unaligned genomic sequence read data.

  • Publication number: 20180295155
    Abstract: Systems and methods for governing derived electronic resources are provided. In one embodiment, a digital resource is associated with one or more rules and a set of one or more computations, wherein the rules correspond to one or more conditions for accessing the digital resource and the computations operate upon the digital resource in order to provide a specific view of the digital resource that differs from the digital resource.

  • Publication number: 20180039997
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to systems and methods for association of information with a product using genetic material. In various embodiments, genetic material such as plasmids may be incorporated into and/or otherwise persistently associated with a product. The genetic material may be encoded with, among other things, information that may uniquely identify the product, provide details relating to the origins of the product, the handling, distribution, and/or chain of custody of the product, intellectual property rights and/or other rights associated with the product, and/or the like. By extracting and analyzing the genetic material from the product, information encoded in the genetic material may be obtained by an interested party.

  • Publication number: 20180038704
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for recommending information to passengers. In certain embodiments, based on potential passenger interests, one or more intermediate points of interest may be identified and provided to a mobile device associated with a driver of a transportation service for personal recommendation to a passenger. Potential passenger interests may be identified from direct interaction between a driver and a passenger, based on interferences derived from the nature of an indicated destination, and/or the like. Providing targeted and personalized recommendations to a captive audience such as a passenger of a transportation service may, among other things, allow for more efficient targeting of recommendations that are well matched to a passenger's interests during a trip, and are therefore more likely to be acted on by a passenger.

  • Publication number: 20180032667
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to systems and methods for enforcing various rights and interests in connection with genetic material synthesis processes. In certain embodiments, the systems and methods disclosed herein may compare a genetic material a user would like to synthesize with a genetic material synthesis system with one or more managed genetic materials. If the genetic material is found to be similar to a managed genetic material (e.g., similar in genetic sequence, synthesizing process, molecular shape and/or structure, etc.), policy associated with the managed genetic material may be enforced in connection with synthesizing the genetic material.
