Complete Genomics Partners with DNAnexus to Provide Cloud-Based Data Storage, Analysis


Complete Genomics and DNAnexus have partnered to provide customers of Complete's human genome sequencing service with cloud-based data storage, visualization, and analysis capabilities, the companies said this week.

Customers of Complete Genomics will have access to informatics tools through DNAnexus' cloud-based platform, which will allow them to visualize and query multiple human genomes, including structural variations, copy number variations, and small variants.

In addition, DNAnexus will host human genome datasets that Complete Genomics released publicly last month and will make them available as reference data to its customers.

In the future, DNAnexus will also integrate Complete Genomics' CGA Tools, a suite of open-source software for the downstream analysis of data produced by the company.

DNAnexus started offering cloud-based data storage and analysis services for users of the Illumina and SOLiD sequencing platforms last year (IS 4/20/2010). The firm uses Amazon Web Services as its provider of computational and storage resources.
