While the firm's customers will be able to use the module to conduct tertiary analysis of next-generation DNA-sequencing data, the tool could also benefit array users, particularly those using high-density chips in association studies.

The new module, which will provide an integrated desktop tool for tertiary analysis of next-generation DNA sequencing data, is the company's first for the NGS sector.

The company said that the next version of its SNP & Variation Suite software will be able to run on off-the-shelf GPUs and detect copy number variations 10 to 20 times faster on a GPU than on a similarly priced CPU.
