DNAnexus to Integrate Nvidia Microservices Into Precision Health Data Platform

NEW YORK – DNAnexus said Tuesday that it will integrate Nvidia's new NIM and CUDA-X microservices into its Precision Health Data Cloud.

The Nvidia Parabricks NIM microservices suite includes optimized artificial intelligence models and workflows with industry-standard application programming interfaces. Precision Health Data Cloud helps diagnostics firms manage, analyze, and share NGS data.

Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"This ongoing collaboration with Nvidia will allow our customers to seamlessly apply the latest advances in AI to their specific workflows from anywhere at any time," DNAnexus CEO Thomas Laur said in a statement.

"By working with providers like DNAnexus, Nvidia is allowing more healthcare companies to create and deploy optimized models in biology and chemistry to build new solutions that will help drive the next wave of computer-aided drug discovery," Kimberly Powell, VP of healthcare at Nvidia, said in a statement.

The firms have partnered with each other since at least 2020.

Nvidia Parabricks microservices address computational bottlenecks in genomics analysis, providing accelerated alignment and variant calling workflows. These production-grade microservices can be deployed through the Nvidia AI Enterprise 5.0 software platform, available directly through DNAnexus.
