Complete Genomics' sequence data, New England Biolabs' NEBNext, Caliper Life Sciences' TruSeq protocols, CLC Bio and Omixon's Gapped SOLiD Alignment plug-in, DNAnexus' Variation Identification software, Johns Hopkins' Myrna and Crossbow releases

The variant analysis capabilities expand the functionality of the DNAnexus platform, which the company launched last year with the aim of targeting researchers analyzing next-generation sequencing data.

The company announced the new offering, which uses the Amazon cloud infrastructure to analyze and store data, at the annual Bio-IT World Conference and Expo, where a number of speakers debated the pros and cons of cloud-based bioinformatics options.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based firm recently launched web-based data management and functional genomics-analysis services for users of Illumina and SOLiD sequencers. It hopes to attract customers based on both ease of use and pricing.
