Pluto collaborative life sciences platform

Monday, 30 August, 2021 | Supplied by: Pluto Biosciences

Pluto Biosciences has launched a cloud-based, collaborative life sciences platform that leverages technology developed at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. The Pluto platform is designed to simplify secure, collaborative data sharing and bioinformatics analysis for academic, biotech and pharmaceutical organisations. It was built to be a comprehensive digital lab space for life sciences teams of all sizes, enabling them to perform research efficiently while reducing the need for multiple digital communication and project management tools to make scientific discoveries.

The intuitive, browser-based interface allows users to upload raw data from a wide variety of biological assays, including genomics, transcriptomics and other omics data, in addition to data from lower-throughput experiments, imaging studies and more. The platform analyses these experiments and delivers interactive, customisable, high-quality plots with no coding necessary. Computationally savvy users can also read data programmatically, enabling them to perform any of their own bioinformatics analyses from a single source of truth.

Raw data, experimental results, accompanying protocols and other relevant files can be shared easily and securely among collaborators. Once finalised, results can be published in a format that is searchable, end-to-end reproducible and accessible to any researcher in the world. Labs can also compare their results with the latest published research.

With a lab’s experiments organised in Pluto, the platform allows researchers to assign tasks to other team members and also tracks and reports lab productivity by project or funding source so that research teams can make data-driven decisions to hit upcoming milestones. These features empower teams to run projects efficiently.

The platform was developed to streamline the aspects of scientific collaboration and biological data analysis that are especially challenging but are critical when researching complex problems in life sciences, by creating a platform that brings together collaborators with different areas of expertise. Empowering life sciences organisations to accelerate their research with their own comprehensive, digital lab space, its secure, collaborative data management and analysis features make bioinformatics accessible and enable teams to make scientific discoveries quickly.
