ENPICOM is an innovative immunomics data analysis company
At ENPICOM, we support organizations studying immune system related diseases or developing drugs influencing this system with groundbreaking products and customized solutions to improve and accelerate discovery and development of novel immunotherapies.
ENPICOM has recently successfully launched our unique world-class repertoire sequencing data analysis solution, the ImmunoGenomiX (IGX) platform and aims for a large market adoption under biotech, pharma and academic users. IGX is an innovative platform to manage, store, analyze, visualize and interpret immune repertoire sequencing data from T and B cell receptors. The smart new analysis and visualization methods are also offered as IGX-service.
Our company has a strong focus on developing bleeding edge technology that supports personalized healthcare, combined with a passion for the well-being of people. Quality, creativity and self-development are top priorities. ENPICOM believes in a good work-life balance and offer flexible working hours, flexibility in organizing your work and an employee stock ownership plan.
Good data stewardship is key to knowledge discovery and innovation. To generate value for a research community beyond the initial researchers, funding agencies are increasingly setting requirements for proper data stewardship of research data. Beyond proper collection, annotation, and archival, data stewardship includes the ‘long-term care’ of research data, with the goal that they can be found and re-used in downstream studies. To facilitate good data stewardship, a broad community of international stakeholders have developed the FAIR Data principles.
The high-throughput sequencing of immune repertoire, is increasingly applied in the development of tumor biomarkers and immunotherapeutics for cancers. As a relatively new field, most tools for the analysis and sharing of immunogenomic results do not follow FAIR data principles for good data stewardship.
During this internship you will have the chance to learn about FAIR data stewardship in the context of immunogenomics and Adaptive Immune Receptor repertoire (AIRR) sequencing experiments.
