A cloud configuration provides users with the flexibility to scale up to the cloud during times of high capacity and return to onsite analysis when demand is reduced. The platform is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, regulations developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to protect the privacy and security of patients' health information. Onsite analysis is also feasible, with both systems managed through the DRAGEN web portal, featuring an easy-to-use graphical user interface. Pipelines are identical whether executed in the cloud or onsite.
DRAGEN is highly reconfigurable, using FPGA to provide hardware-accelerated implementations of genome pipeline algorithms, such as BCL conversion, compression, mapping, alignment, sorting, duplicate marking, and haplotype variant calling. The flexible DRAGEN platform allows Edico to develop custom algorithms as well as refine and improve existing pipelines. The following end-to-end, clinical-grade pipelines are currently available on the DRAGEN platform: genome/exome, transcriptome/RNA-seq, epigenome/methyl-seq, metagenome/microbiome, joint genotyping and GATK 3.6. Updated versions are made available for customers through regular, simple remote downloads.
Pricing for the DRAGEN cloud solution on AWS will be announced by year end.
