Corteva Agriscience and Genestack Sign Multi-Year Agreement to Implement Omics Data Manager

CAMBRIDGE, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– Corteva Agriscience TM has signed a multi-year agreement with Genestack Limited to implement and license the use of Omics Data Manager, Genestack’s multi-omics data catalog, curation and integrative search product. This agreement will facilitate the full utilization of collected research data, enabling insights to help improve the delivery of products, services and solutions to benefit farmers. Omics Data Manager (ODM) will help researchers at Corteva Agriscience accelerate the characterization of novel seed and crop protection solutions through better aggregation of experimental data. ODM provides a single, modern, interface to identify the biological samples of interest across public and internal datasets, which, combined with powerful curation tools, will enable Corteva researchers to ensure the accuracy and validity of study, sample, and analysis metadata. Ultimately, ODM will empower Corteva to FAIRify (make Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable) and fully utilize their omics datasets. “The software will allow bioinformaticians, discovery scientists and data scientists to collaboratively design new omics studies on a common platform, capture rich metadata and relationships between current and past studies, performing large-scale, cross-study queries across multi-omics datasets. We look forward to implementing these tools across Corteva Agriscience R&D,” said Jochen Scheel, Leader – Data Science and Informatics, Corteva Agriscience. “ODM is our latest product and it builds on years of work with top industry partners. We’re proud of the modern technology stack, flexible multi-omics data, metadata models and APIs, as well as our focus on great user experience. We are really excited to work with Corteva, who are ready to adapt and extend our technology for the needs of agriscience research. We believe firmly that modern enterprise data strategy is not just about software, but also about the right team and an agile, collaborative, long-term thinking approach,” said Misha Kapushesky, CEO, Genestack Limited.
