Founded in 2013 by Amit Sinha (Harvard Medical School), Basepair is a web based platform for next generation sequencing for scientists. Traditional sequencing methods are costly and take a long time. For example, the Human Genome Project took over 10 years to complete at a cost that approached $3B. Basepair’s technology allows scientists to complete several workflows in an hour and pay per sample analyzed. The platform is already being used at a number of highly respected institutions including Memorial Sloan Kettering and Harvard Medical School.
