Edico Genome, creator of an end-to-end platform solution for analysis of next-generation sequencing data, today announced it was named a winner of an IBM Choice Award for 2017 North America Top Independent Software Vendor. Honored at the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in Las Vegas, Edico Genome was recognized for its secure, scalable, public platform for virtual or onsite ultra-rapid analysis of next-generation sequencing data. By utilizing DRAGEN technology deployed in IBM’s SoftLayer cloud, users of the technology can analyze their genomic data in just minutes. In addition, existing users of onsite DRAGEN systems can now operate as part of a secure hybrid cloud with the flexibility to scale up to the cloud during times of high capacity and return to onsite analysis when demand is reduced.
