We are a company that specialises in platform as a service, bioinformatics pipeline development, insights generation, machine learning R&D, statistical models and visualisations for a wide range of local and international clients.
We build software frameworks and analysis pipelines for organisations such as the International Cerebral Palsy Genetics Consortium (ICPGC), Genie.Us Genomics and Headsafe and their NuroChek system. These hold, analyse and distil knowledge out of high dimensional biomedical data sets.
Other work we do involves leveraging our team’s analytics capabilities, whether it’s data processing, building a snappy dashboard or using state of the art machine learning and AI techniques — we love it all. People we’ve worked for or continue to develop for include White Box Analytics, smrtr, Allwright Analytics and RXP.
We make data speak your language. Since your main customers are in your data, we use the best tools so you can get the best out of your data.


Pacific Analytics built the CP commons platform prototype (https://icpgc.org/) with the goal of advancing a common infrastructure of genomics and clinical data, and harmonising approaches to enable effective and responsible sharing of genomics and health-related data. As well as production bioinformatics frameworks for multiple NFPs and commercial entities. We are currently collaborating with the Black Ochre Data Labs the Indigenous Genomics Group at the Telethon Kids Institute, Australia, to develop a secure data platform for the MORPHEUS project, enhancing the GA4GH DRS API standard for user-specific encrypted data access. This initiative aims to ensure compatibility across GA4GH community implementations.
We assisted GenieUS with their bioinformatics software development and analysis which in turn facilitates the flexibility and speed that was required.
The Pacific Analytics bioinformatics production and pipelines have been acquired by GenieUs in 2020. We look forward to building the best integrated genomics platform in the world with this new deal."
