LabKey builds open source systems to help scientists collect, analyze, and share data from high-throughput experiments and observational studies. We are for-profit business based in Seattle, housed in and partly owned by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
LabKey software powers proteomics repositories at the FHCRC, Cedars-Sinai, and Harvard; flow cytometry studies at the Statistical Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Prevention and the University of Washington; and HIV repositories for the Center for HIV-AIDS Vaccine Immunology at Duke and the Gates-funded Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery. The software manages terabytes of data daily.
We earn money contracting with researchers to extend the software to meet their unique needs. We then distribute those extensions back to the scientific community freely via open source. This approach spreads the cost of building the software over many labs. Investment to date totals over $3 million.
The LabKey Software Foundation distributes the LabKey source code for free under terms of the Apache Software License. Binary distributions are available for sale to for-profit businesses and for free to not-for-profit research institutions. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
