Edico Genome is now offering its DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform in AWS’ Marketplace, bringing the best of DRAGEN’s FPGA-backed platform to the cloud. Through this integration, labs of all sizes can now accelerate their secondary analysis through the highly accurate DRAGEN platform without the upfront investment of an on-site server.

Amazon EC2 F1 is a compute instance utilizing FPGAs that can be programed to create custom hardware accelerations. F1 instances are offered in two different sizes; an F1.2xlarge that includes a single FPGA and an F1.16xlarge that includes eight FPGAs. F1 instances are powered by 16 nm Xilinx UltraScale Plus FPGAs that contains approximately 2.5 million logic elements and approximately 6,800 Digital Signal Processing (DSP) engines. Each FPGA includes local 64 GiB DDR4 ECC protected memory, with a dedicated PCIe x16 connection.

Available Pipelines

DRAGEN Genome Pipeline

DRAGEN’s Genome Pipeline is now available in AWS Marketplace. The DRAGEN Genome Pipeline enables ultra-rapid analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data, accelerating analysis time from many hours, with pipelines including BWA+GATK or Isaac, to minutes, while also improving accuracy for both SNPs and INDELs. This pipeline harnesses the tremendous power of the DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform and includes highly optimized algorithms for mapping, aligning, sorting, duplicate marking, haplotype variant calling, compression and decompression. Running on a 16xlarge instance, the Genome Pipeline takes ~25 minutes, and ~60 minutes on a 2xlarge instance.

Ultra-Rapid Genomics Cloud

Edico Genome’s DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform is deployed on Amazon Web Services’ Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) F1 instances, a compute instance with field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) which can be programmed to create custom hardware accelerations.

A cloud configuration provides users with the flexibility to scale up to the cloud during times of high capacity and return to onsite analysis when demand is reduced. The platform is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, regulations developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to protect the privacy and security of patients’ health information. Onsite analysis is also feasible, with both systems managed through the DRAGEN web portal, featuring an easy-to-use graphical user interface. Pipelines are identical whether executed in the cloud or onsite.

AWS Marketplace

AWS Marketplace is an online store where you can sell or buy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS Marketplace complements programs like Amazon DevPay and the Amazon Partner Network.
