The tranSMART Foundation is charging forward with the continuing development of the tranSMART Version 1.2 platform, with our public Launch Events for the release on September 9th. Version 1.2 will see several additions and improvements, most notably support for both Oracle and Ingres. Additions include enhancements in cross trial analyses and in a built-out workspace that will allow for query settings to be saved between sets of analysis. Added to the feature set are Genome Wide Association Studies GWAS) as well as integration with R among several other key features.
The development of this latest version of the tranSMART platform is made possible by tranSMART’s community and participating Members – a community that has been growing markedly over the past year. Our Community Meeting, hosted by Deloitte Convergehealth in Boston at the end of April, saw over 100 attendees. That plus other Foundation meetings during BioIT World 2014 resulted in new additions to tranSMART’s three driving groups: Content, Code and Community.
