Technology deployed to support people with disabilities
EPFL students taking the Assistive Technologies Challenge class have developed personalized systems for patients with motor impairments.
Startup brings RNA sequencing into the age of big data
EPFL spin-off Alithea Genomics has developed a system that allows scientists to easily tag bulk RNA samples with molecular barcodes so they can be processed by the hundreds in one single tube. The technology promises to dramatically shorten and streamline sample preparation for RNA sequencing, which will enable new applications for this technology, such as biomarker discovery and drug development.
