Integrated and Intuitive workflows designed to generate actionable insights into somatic cancers and hereditary diseases
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & SAN DIEGO — DNAnexus, Inc., the provider of the Precision Health Data Cloud, and Intelliseq, a genome informatics company and innovative provider of next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis solutions, today announced a partnership to simplify and accelerate variant interpretation and clinical reporting. As part of the agreement, DNAnexus is adding Intelliseq’s automated genome interpretation and reporting capabilities to its Precision Health Data Cloud. The integrated, one-click solution will streamline NGS data analysis and provide scientists with the ability to generate critical insights into somatic cancers, hereditary diseases, and other precision medicine and biomedical research applications.
The combined offering provides users with a complete analysis solution from NGS variant calling to final clinical interpretation, all on the secure and scalable DNAnexus Precision Health Data Cloud. Intelliseq’s iFlow™ Engine translates raw DNA sequences into complete reports with clinical insights. It fits all NGS analysis approaches from a single gene to whole genome. Users are able to take advantage of prebuilt workflows for somatic cancer and hereditary diseases using Intelliseq’s GeneSpect Reporters, or use Intelliseq’s Customica package for custom projects. The two companies will add Intelliseq’s GeneSpect Pharmacogenomics and Polygenic Risk Score Reporters in early 2024.
