Guiding Principles

Persagen strongly advocates and adheres to fundamental principles:

  • social responsibility
  • the right to privacy and your ownership of your personal, private information:
    • no transferring, sharing or sale of personal and/or private data …
  • quality; excellence
  • responsibility
  • diversity, tolerance, respect

Quality Assurance

An overriding concern at Persagen is quality assurance. Data quality issues include:

  • source / provenance
  • accuracy / precision
  • noise / errors
  • granularity

Sadly, in an era of “fake news / alternate facts,” for-profit publishing, and resume padding even the biomedical literature is susceptible to “predatory journals” and fake publications.

Our work is governed by the dictum “Garbage in, garbage out.”  We apply custom approaches to address these issues.
