ESAC, Inc. has been awarded a multiyear contract to continue supporting the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) Program.
The overall objective of CPTAC is to understand cancer biology by conducting proteogenomic analysis on selected cancer types. The major goal of this program is to facilitate collaborative exchange within and between the Proteome Characterization Centers (PCCs) using a private secure web-based data repository as well as the transfer of CPTAC genomic data between the Genome Characterization Center and the Genomic Data Commons. Second, establish a public data web portal for the cancer research and medical community to query and access the data generated by CPTAC investigators. Both of these goals required harmonization of data and metadata from consortium members at different research across the United States.
We are quite impressed with not only by the technical skills provided by ESAC's software engineers but also by the depth and breadth of their subject matter experts who have provided guidance on standards and interoperability, quality assurance, and project management issues.
ESAC's technical savvy and personable staff provides tremendous value to projects involving multi-center coordination and high dimensional data management. They merge a fundamental understanding of biology with expertise in data quality control and data security. Integrating all of these factors is key to delivering a secure and fast data portal for the scientific community.
