Qiagen CLC Genomics Workbench Premium

Qiagen Digital Insights has released an update to its Qiagen CLC Genomics Workbench Premium, incorporating a software accelerator called LightSpeed for faster analysis of next-generation sequencing data. The company said that this technology will allow laboratories to process a genome sequenced at 34X depth in 25 minutes for $1 of cloud computing costs and a 50X exome in 90 seconds for a few pennies on "standard" clouds. Qiagen is touting CLC Genomics Workbench Premium as "ideal" for neonatal screening for hereditary diseases or population genomics studies.
