DNANexus Signs Agreements with Geisinger Health System, UCSF


DNANexus said this week that it has signed an agreement with Geisinger Health System that should yield clinically relevant workflows for the use of genome sequence data in medicine.

Specifically, scientists in Geisinger's Clinical Program for Whole Genome Sequencing will have access to DNANexus' genomic data management capabilities, including data visualization, analysis, and storage.

In turn, Geisinger will counsel the company on the use of WGS data in clinical settings, and on ways to extend DNANexus' capabilities to further support such activities, the company said.

Simultaneously, DNANexus said that researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, will use its cloud platform to upload, store, and analyze their sequence data.
