RowAnalytics is an exciting start-up with some first-in-world technology to analyze high dimensional data including genomic, phenotypic and clinical. We can do computations that nobody else yet can – like analyzing multiple disease factors in combination and in parallel. The world’s best standard today of hyper-combinatorial analysis is 3 factors: we’re at 17 and our software is able to identify combinations of up to 30 factors that occur in patient populations but not in controls, and we are pushing for more factors in combination. Besides having cool technology, we’re a really fun bunch that truly wants to learn from you, just as we hope to be able to teach you some of the things we’ve learned along the way. We’re headquartered in Kidlington, UK, with new offices in Copenhagen, Warsaw and Cambridge, MA.

Join us for 3 months this summer – it will be way more fun than laying on the beach all day and getting sand in your phone!
