“What I think makes the relationship work, is the knowledge and quality of the informatics and project management skills of the Rancho staff, their customer focus, willingness to ask good/tough questions in the spirit of making the project a success, delivery on timelines and flexibility under pressure. Communication is also critical – agreeing to an action plan, delivering the agreed analysis on time while adjusting to emerging data along the way are oh-so-rare these days and this MO is the base practice at Rancho. “

Maureen Cronin, Celgene

“I was skeptical about how effective it would be to outsource bioinformatics projects to a contract resource.  My experience over the last two years has shown me that I need not have worried.  The Rancho Biosciences team had impact with essentially a zero learning curve.  They show sophisticated understanding of the projects where we needed help and were able to grasp the context and goals of projects almost more fully than many team members.  The Rancho Biosciences team is also highly skilled in project management; communication is clear, constant and well documented; and, project progress is tracked and reported in ways all members can access status information with no difficulty.  Our relationship with Rancho Biosciences has proven to be a great asset that offers instant scalability as programs and resource needs evolve. We intend to continue our partnership for the foreseeable future.”

Jeff Aaronson, CHDI

“Rancho BioSciences take care of data quality, normalization, and curation as well as bioinformatics analysis and knowledge mining for multiple teams at CHDI. Colleagues often approach me to engage Rancho’s services now; they’ve become an integral part of how we work.”

Marcia Fournier, Bioarray Genetics

“In brief the quality of work, performing tasks in a timing and reliable manner are an important part of what we get from Rancho. Your team is superb and provide intellectual input vs. just doing what they are told so. On the business side, the multiple payment models offer flexibility to accommodate different types of projects (e.g. short term vs long term projects). Also you have a complete offering with capabilities to deal with data curation, databases and bioinformatics.”

“The custom integration platform has allowed us to develop a robust process for managing our data curation needs. We have worked with the team at Rancho BioSciences for several years and their unique expertise has been vital to achieving our goals for the Transforming Research and Clinical Knowledge in Traumatic Brain Injury Initiative (TRACK-TBI).”


Keith Elliston
CEO of the tranSMART

“We applaud Rancho BioSciences for this and their many other contributions to the community. Rancho’s contributions are fostering the sharing of data and making it easier to access. Through the open source tranSMART Platform, more and more scientists are able to use the data available to them in their translational research programs.”

“Rancho’s customizations regarding a better results visualization and improved batch filtering provide valuable new features to the PAA package for the analysis of protein array experiments. Contributions from the user community are the strength of open source software development.”

Wayne Smerdon

“Rancho BioSciences helped us to successfully complete a large, very important project. They quickly captured our needs and built a tool to process large amounts of data quickly which we could never have processed on our own.”

Robert McBurney

“Subsets of the ACP BioRepository samples have been utilized in more than 70 research studies around the world. The datasets returned to the repository database from experiments performed on these samples are widely diverse, and range from GWAS and gene expression data to the results of high-throughput antibody, and metabolite measurements. We have incredibly rich and deep information on subsets of our samples, but the task of curating and integrating all these varied types of experimental and clinical data in a unified warehouse for analysis was daunting. Rancho BioSciences provides the expertise and resources we require on site.”


“I have known Julie and the principals of RB for a long time and I have always been impressed by their innovative spirit, scientific depth, passion and integrity. Their embracing tranSMART and being major contributor of the open source community ensures that the translational science solutions they deliver will be robust, reliable and state-of-the-art.”

“We have used Rancho BioSciences services to create a unique detailed annotation of rare human diseases. Rancho applied a combination of advanced text mining methods on PubMed abstract and manual curation to create a map of primary and secondary cell types involved in pathology of over 7,000 rare human diseases. The results is a relational database with control vocabularies that enables advanced data mining to find novel therapeutic targets.

Julie and her team provide top notch technical expertise combined with very efficient execution of the whole project that was delivered in advance of the planned due date. Hands down the best scientific data curation service I have used in my life. I have recommended Rancho BioSciences to my colleagues and friends in the past and am sure that I will use their services again.“
