Consortium for Sequencing the Food Supply Chain - Automated Analytics Services
A carefully designed informatics infrastructure developed at IBM Research serves as a data and analytics hub for the consortium members. This research prototype enables the team to parse and aggregate terabytes of genomic and microbiome data while applying refined analytics to uncover new insights. It serves as a collaborative hub for consortium members to innovate and develop methods. Accessed easily through a web browser, this interface provides simplified views through a hazard dashboard as well as more detailed views and data export for users more interested in applying their additional analytics. In the future, adding relevant weather, transport and other contextual data may help define pre-emptive interventions for food producers and distributors at the outset of a processing cycle.
