Pacific Biosciences Inks Alliance for Cloud-based Analysis

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pacific Biosciences today said that it has partnered with Cycle Computing to optimize its PacBio RS Single-Molecule Real-Time Analysis software for the cloud.

The Menlo Park, Calif.-based firm said that the cloud-based version of its software would scale to meet the data analysis needs of SMRT sequencing and support a workflow that includes sample preparation, sequencing, and data analysis in less than a single day. PacBio plans to release a beta version of the cloud-based solution with the next major upgrade of its RS, which is scheduled for the end of this year.

"Analysis of long, single-molecule, real-time sequencing reads from unamplified samples without the need to maintain complex and expensive hardware and software will offer customers more flexibility to realize the potential of the PacBio RS," Edwin Hauw, director of software product management for Pacific Biosciences, said in a statement.
