Purpose and goal
The loss of biodiversity is one of the biggest challenges faced by humanity, and by 2050 it is estimated to cost 33 trillion €/year through its impact on e.g. food security, clean air and water, and disease spread across the world. However, those working with biodiversity are limited by current analysis approaches. eDNA solutions AB has developed a prototype for a cloud based software tool facilitating the analysis of molecular biodiversity data.
Expected results and effects
In short, the application consists of a back and front end. The back end consists of essentially three parts: Database (MySQL), API and Wrapper. The API that is the hub of the application and joins all parts of the system follows the OpenAPI 2.0 standard. The front end is built using Angular 2 where the integrations to the API have been generated by Swagger. In the prototype, a number of key features are available such as authentication, creation of new analyzes and list saved, running and finished analyzes. Application displays results, graphs and data from the running / executed analyzes.
Planned approach and implementation
The application was built in collaboration with external consultants where eDNA developed the backend while the frontend was developed by the consultants. First tests on the application are run by potential customers and their feedback will be important to further develop the prototype. Furthermore, a tight interaction with potential customers gives us the opportunity for a detailed market analysis and for developing our business model.
