Data cleansing

Data cleansing + pre-processing

Connect to and import data sources, automate cleansing of semi-structured data and index data at the point of entry


Do you spend more time as a ‘data janitor’ than a data master?

If so, you’re not alone: ‘messy’, unstructured and ambiguous data is commonplace in life sciences companies. As a result, data scientists spend almost 80% of their time collecting, cleansing, formatting and linking data, and only 20% of their time actually analysing it.

Despite major advances in technology, the mantra ‘garbage in, garbage out’ is still pivotal to any computational approach. The accuracy and reliability of new technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, remain critically dependent on the quality of the data used as an input. Ultimately, the presence of messy data hampers both data integration and the ability to extract insight from it.

SciBite delivers the unique combination of comprehensive hand-curated ontologies, user friendly data cleansing tools and unparalleled expertise in biocuration. We transform your messy data into the clean, high quality, contextualised data necessary for downstream integration and discovery activities to be effective.

Use cases

Eliminating the Data Preparation Burden

For most pharmaceutical companies, extracting insight from heterogeneous and ambiguous data remains a challenge. The era of data-driven R&D is motivating investment in technologies such as machine learning to provide deeper insights into new drug development strategies.

The quality of data directly impacts the accuracy and reliability of results of computational approaches. However, the work required to achieve clean, high quality data can be costly, often prohibitively so, requiring data scientists to spend the majority of their time as ‘data janitors’, rather than actually analysing data.

SciBite provides an integrated, cost-effective solution to significantly reduce the time and cost associated with the process of data cleansing, normalisation and annotation. The output ensures that downstream integration and discovery activities are based on high quality, contextualised data.
