The Rancho Tool Kit is a collection of processing and analysis code that accelerates analysis, streamlines the QC process, and encourages development of professional, consistent, and accessible scientific products.

Rancho has been developing content and tools since 2012. Over the years we generated a lot of in-house technology that we bring to projects and produce high quality efficient results for our clients.

The Fuzzy Logic Tool supports rapid, practical data harmonization based on phonetic alignment. When building this term-mapping solution, we found that existing methods are either too restrictive (statistical methods) or too permissive (soundex method).

Our Fuzzy Tool algorithm has been implemented as an API in addition to an Excel plugin. The implementation provides a two-pronged approach to accelerate the mapping process: first identifying the best ontologies to map the data and to subsequently leveraging an indexed ontology.


A platform to collect data from clinical data sites – simultaneously checks for updates, downloads, and converts data to format that is FAIR. Minimizes human time spent on data updates and facilitates rapid data ingestion into a platform of choice.

The Rancho Knowledge Base is an internal portal with a searchable interface for a curated inventory of existing resources. This resource provides Rancho scientists the ability to discover previous project results, code or datasets delivered as part of previous projects. We built this catalog to support project acceleration from over 1,500 successfully delivered projects.

The Rancho Data Crawler is a web-application that given a complex search string, crawls study-level metadata in PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, GEO, SRA, EGA, and ArrayExpress and outputs results to an XLSX (Excel) file within minutes. This application is meant to accelerate the data crawling process by putting our proprietary Rancho data crawler scripts at the fingertips of any project team that needs them, no scripting needed.
