DRAGEN Total Genomics Solution
The complete solution for analyzing, reanalyzing, storing and archiving genomic data at the lowest cost and highest fidelity.
The Biggest Problem in Genomics
Raw data for each sample from a sequencing instruments is not only analyzed once, but typically reanalyzed several times each year as updated algorithms, references or applications are released. This results in a significant computational load and associated cost.
Another huge problem facing genomics is big data storage. Next generation sequencing (NGS) users typically maintain all raw data files (FASTQ) as well as intermediate (BAM) and result files (VCF) for extended periods of time and in most cases, indefinitely. Duplicate copies of all files are also usually maintained as backups, making the total amount of data that is stored for each initial sample extremely large and expensive.
