BioNano's Updated Irys Data Solutions

BioNano Genomics has launched an update to its Irys Data Solution to improve structural variation analysis in human samples. The product is a powerful suite of software and hardware solutions that includes IrysSolve, which hosts the data analysis pipeline; IrysView, which provides visualized genome map information; and IrysSolve Compute, a server solution optimized to run the IrysSolve software. The update includes IrysSolve v2.1 which includes a new automated haplotype-aware assembler that separates allelic differences in the generated maps, and a new structural variation calling algorithm that can quickly and accurately determine individual instances of both homozygous and heterozygous structural variation within a human sample.
