al School. "The Arvados software and the data collected through Personal Genome Projects can be a foundation for the development and delivery of precision medicine in cancer, neo-natal care, inherited diseases, pharmacogenomics, and a variety of other applications."

The series seed financing round included investments from Hatteras Venture Partners, Point Judith Ventures, Common Angels, MassVentures, and Boston Global Ventures.

"For the last several years we have closely followed the market for bioinformatics platforms that address new challenges created by next-generation sequencing and biomedical big data," said Clay Thorp, general partner at Hatteras Venture Partners. "Curoverse has a clear strategy to use open source technology with a unique go-to-market model that is well-aligned with the needs of research and clinical customers."

Curoverse is available today through a private beta program. The company plans to release their first commercial products in 2014. The Arvados software is available at http://arvados.org.
