Two recent publications suggest that DeepVariant's machine learning is far superior to traditional methods of variant calling, especially with hardware accelerators.

With the three-year grants, the institutions will continue an initiative that is developing tools and technologies for genome biology research.

With an SBIR Phase II grant in hand, Michigan startup Parabricks is adding both speed and AI to variant calling as it eyes a Series A round next year.

The institutions will develop a cloud-based storage and compute infrastructure for unrestricted and controlled-access data and metadata from NHGRI's projects.

In addition to the federal grant, the startup has received $125,000 from a Michigan technology fund to help commercialize its GPU-based analysis platform.

The UK-based maker of clinical genomics interpretation software is moving into the US and China after carefully researching the differences from European markets.

The new hardware expands Garvan's current system so that it can better support large-scale whole-genome and single-cell sequencing initiatives.

The framework, called HEAL, could be used as an early screening test for AAA and as a personal health management tool. In addition, it may be applicable to other complex diseases.

While "genomical" has not supplanted "astronomical" in the lexicon, geneticist Gene Robinson believes data scientists understand the sheer size of genomic information.

The automated, whole-genome directional genomic hybridization system can measure de novo random, low-frequency, and complex structural variations.
