About UsThe mission of BSI is to make a positive difference in proteomic research, primarily through professionally supported software and by providing committed international leadership through standards of excellence. Bioinformatics Solutions Inc. develops advanced algorithms based on innovative research, providing solutions to fundamental bioinformatics problems. This small, adaptable group is committed to serving the needs of pharmaceutical, biotechnological and academic scientists; and to the progression of drug discovery research. The company, founded in 2000 in Waterloo, Canada, comprises a select group of talented, award-winning, and intelligent developers, scientists and sales people.
At BSI, groundbreaking research and customer focus go hand in hand on our journey towards excellent software solutions. We value an intellectual space that fosters learning and an understanding of current scientific knowledge. With an understanding of theory, we can focus our talents on providing solutions to difficult, otherwise unsolved problems that have resulted in research bottlenecks. At BSI, we are not satisfied with a solution that goes only partway to solving these problems; our solutions must offer something more than existing software.
The BSI team recognizes that real people will use our software tools. As such, we hold in principle that it is not enough to develop solely on theory; we must develop with customer needs in mind. We believe the only solution is one that incorporates quality and timely results, a satisfying product experience, customer support and two-way communication. So then, we value market research, development flexibility and company-wide collaboration, evolving our offerings to match the market/user's needs. Efficient and concentrated research, development, customer focus and market analysis have produced: PEAKS software for protein and peptide identification from tandem mass spectrometry data, RAPTOR and PROSPECT Pro software for threading based 3D protein structure prediction, PatternHunter software for all types of homology search sequence comparison and ZOOM software for next-generation sequencing.
