Our mission at Elucidata is to accelerate the pace of discovery in the life sciences through our state-of-the-art data harmonization platform- Polly.

By integrating advanced computational strategies with biological insights, we empower researchers and organizations to unlock the full potential of their data, facilitating breakthroughs in drug discovery, disease understanding, and therapeutic development.

Problem Statement

There is trillions of TBs of life sciences data available. But all that data is not usable. A scientist can spend anywhere from days to weeks per month in getting their data ready for analysis. At Elucidata, we’re flipping this 80-20 ratio by building technology to harmonize biomedical data and make them ML-Ready. Elucidata’s data harmonization platform- Polly, is designed to deliver richly curated biomolecular data prepared for machine learning applications.

How Does Polly by Elucidata Harmonize Data?

Polly's powerful harmonization engine processes measurements, links to harmonized metadata and transforms them into a Unified Data Model. By doing so, it accelerates downstream analysis by ~24 times. The data harmonization process completes metadata annotations with 99.99% accuracy and annotates them with 30+ metadata fields. All data is checked for quality and completeness with around 50 QA/QC checks ensuring pristine quality data. The machine learning algorithms ensure uniformity across data formats, structures, and semantics making it fit for downstream analysis.  

Polly's Harmonization Engine

Besides, Elucidata supports over 25+ multi-modal data types from in-house sources and also from 30+ public repositories. We also offer tailored solutions for Early-stage R&D, Precision Medicine Diagnostics, Research Informatics and Translational Research markets - Achieve faster R&D outcomes, unlock cost and time efficiencies, break data silos or scale cloud infrastructure for growth! Here’s a list of solutions in addition to Data Harmonization on Polly:

  • Pipeline Development
