Heterogeneous

Heterogeneous is a comprehensive research platform that allows researchers to recruit, sequence and follow up with individuals taking part in their studies at the touch of a button. The platform aims to enable cutting-edge research on a faster timescale and to improve public involvement through personalised feedback and remuneration.

We allow researchers to recruit, sequence and follow up with patients taking part in their studies at the touch of a button. Furthermore, we allow patients to track how their data is being used in medical research, and give them to ability to donate to charity or be paid directly on our platform for their participation. We also aim to give back to the community by making research findings readily available to participants and clinicians. 

Our platform aims to power scientific research on a faster timescale by:

  1. Allowing concurrent research groups to share the sequencing costs on their study participants, saving as much as $250,000 for complex trait studies and up $500,000 for clinical trial recruitment.
  2. Allowing researchers from around the world who are working on the same disease to pool costs and share data between them in order to increase the power of their studies.
  3. Allowing additional lines of scientific inquiry to be investigated that would otherwise have been prohibitively expensive or example, by adding data points to existing profiles with whole genome data instead of sequencing new participants from scratch.
