Ultima Genomics, Nvidia Collaborating on Genome Analysis
Startup Ultima Genomics, fresh out of stealth mode with ambitious plans, will embed Nvidia GPUs into its new UG 100 high-throughput NGS instruments.
The company builds blueprints, HPC accelerators, and software platforms for diagnostics and both commercial and open-source translational research.
The proliferation of NGS data has prompted Jax to organize storage into tiers based on access needs and to implement a chargeback program so researchers know the true costs.
The GPU firm is positioning the healthcare-specific Cambridge-1 system to address evolving AI needs in life sciences, including the processing of massive datasets.
