Edico Genomics

Illumina said the acquisition will help enable a standardized process for sequencing and analysis and speed up the time it take to get a result.

Victorian Clinical Genetics Services is one of two partners in Acute Care Genomics, which is testing DNA from critically ill infants and kids across Australia.

Data aggregator InterSystems will integrate Edico Genome's DRAGEN CGIS into EHRs for easier test ordering and bidirectional data exchange.

Genomics England, which runs the UK's 100,000 Genomes Project, has tapped Edico to reprocess thousands of whole genomes for diagnosing rare diseases.

Children's Hospital Los Angeles has agreed to implement Edico Genome's Dragen Bio-IT suite, including the somatic and RNA seq pipelines.

Fabric disclosed partnerships with Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine, the Utah Genome Project, and Genomics England's 100,000 Genomes Project.

Under the partnership, DNAnexus customers will have direct access to the Dragen Genome Pipeline for "ultra-rapid" genome analysis.

The Dragen pipeline allows for the analysis of a whole human genome in less than 10 minutes. 

Dell Technologies Capital, newly out of stealth, invested in Edico Genome because it believes whole-genome sequencing is almost ready to take off on a wide scale.

Sequencing IT developer Edico said it will use the funding to build out its Dragen bioinformatics processor and step up marketing efforts.
