San francisco, ca: Station x, a provider of software for research scientists and clinicians who work with large-scale genome information has announced the addition of Dnanexus to its cloud-based genome analysis platform Genepool, enabling customers with an end-to-end analytical solution.

Subscribers to Station x’s Genepool genome management and analysis platform who have stored and processed their genomics data on Dnanexus’ platform can now access that data directly from within Genepool and immediately use them in further analyses.

As genome sequencing becomes more broadly adopted both in the research and clinical communities, the ability to efficiently store, analyze and share data and results has become a pivotal step in advancing medical science and delivering new diagnostics and therapeutics. Genome scientists need access to secure, scalable storage and specific analysis pipelines to process their data, ideally without having to move those data around. Researchers and clinicians also need to integrate their genomic data with patient-derived information and be able to analyze and visualize these in a biologically meaningful context.

Cloud-based SaaS platforms are ideal for addressing these needs, and with the combination of the Dnanexus platform for storage and processing and Genepool for analysis, visualization and collaboration, scientists and clinicians now have a comprehensive integrated solution that will enhance the development of new diagnostics in the research lab and enable improved therapeutic decisions in a clinical setting.
