We provide digital technologies and innovations for getting the right data to the right people in the right format at the right time.

Generating new ideas and scientific hypotheses is often the result of extensive literature and database searching, overlaid with scientists’ own novel data and a creative process for making connections that were not evident before. Since 2005, our vision has been to develop a comprehensive approach to guide this technically challenging data integration task and to make knowledge discovery and hypothesis generation easier for researchers.

Our key values are better research, insights with value, thinking outside the box, transparency and satisfied end-users.

KnetMiner, with a silent “K” and standing for Knowledge Network Miner, are resources and software products to help scientists tell the biological stories of complex traits and diseases. Our team of skilled bioinformaticians and computer scientists work collaboratively with academic and industry partners to make KnetMiner a hub for biological knowledge discovery and exploratory data mining.

Our future vision is to evolve KnetMiner into an AI and interactive knowledge driven digital assistant, intelligent enough to answer some of the most complex biological questions with great accuracy.

Our team has the technical knowledge and bioinformatics excellence to surpass your expectations.

Testimonials

With the wealth of genomic resources now available in wheat, having one place where we can query relationships across datasets and species is hugely important. With KnetMiner we can now visualise and access these relationships in a consistent and quick manner, meaning that our work on important agronomic traits is accelerated.

Knetminer turns the predicted contents of genomes into a galaxy of knowns and unknowns that can be easily explored in infinite ways.

Prof Kim Hammond-Kosack

Rothamsted Research

I now train my students and collaborators how to extract data from NASA GeneLab and then feed into KnetMiner to understand the function of candidate genes in relation to spaceflight related stresses such as radiation and micro-gravity.
