Qlucore began as a collaborative research project at Lund University, Sweden, with researchers in the Departments of Mathematics and Clinical Genetics.

From the beginning, the main problem the project faced was the vast amount of high-dimensional data generated by microarray gene expression analysis. As a result, it became clear that an interactive software tool was needed to conceptualize this information.

The basic concept behind the Qlucore software is to provide a tool which can take full advantage of the most powerful pattern recognizer that exists - the human brain. The result is a core software engine that visualizes the data in 3D and which can therefore help the user to identify hidden structures and patterns. Over the last five years, a major effort has been made to build upon these early ideas and to develop a core software engine which is extremely fast and allows the user to explore and analyze high-dimensional data sets - interactively and in real time - with the use of a normal PC.
