On 28th February 1953 James Watson and Francis Crick, two scientists working at Cambridge University (UK) walked into the Eagle Pub and announced “We have found the secret of life”. In fact they had discovered the double helix for which they won a Nobel Prize. This discovery led to the creation of the Human Genome Project in which Watson was deeply involved. Since 1953 many hundreds of genomes have been classified which aids researchers to speed up the R&D processes behind drugs, seeds, and other biological products. The application of computational techniques in support of this explosion of genomic research activity has resulted in the establishment of the field of bioinformatics.
Founded and based in Cambridge UK, with representatives in the USA, Germany, and India, Eagle was named after the pub where Crick and Watson celebrated their discovery. Eagle specialises in bioinformatics, computational and systems biology, providing rare expertise to clients on an as needed (elastic) basis. Clients include life science companies who wish to use genomic data to discover new products whether they are drugs, agricultural products, or personal hygiene products.
Eagle's staff are leaders in the field of management and analysis of genomic data, including Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). Eagle is also highly experienced in helping customers plan, pilot, and migrate their existing bioinformatics systems into the cloud.
"We worked with Eagle Genomics and the experience has been excellent. The Eagle Genomics team is not only very knowledgeable and professional, but also top-notch in meeting milestones and delivering the reports in time. We would like to highly recommend Eagle Genomics's bioinformatics service."
– Dongliang Ge, Director of Bioinformatics, Gilead Sciences Inc.
