DNA Sequencing Data Analysis Solutions

Transform raw DNA sequencing data into meaningful results

Simple DNA Sequence Analysis Tools

Illumina sequencing systems can produce gigabases of sequencing data per day. Our intuitive bioinformatics solutions help researchers make sense of all those base calls. We offer a wide range of comprehensive and seamless next-generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis solutions, including push-button tools for DNA sequence alignment, variant calling, and data visualization.

Analyze DNA sequencing data from large or small whole genomes, whole exomes, targeted gene regions, and more with our user-friendly software.

Scaling from Exomes to Genomes

The DRAGEN BioIT platform enables GeneDx to scale to whole-genome analysis while keeping costs low, turnaround times short, and accuracy high.

Benefits of DNA Sequencing Data Analysis with Illumina Software Solutions

Data generated on Illumina sequencing instruments can be automatically transferred and stored securely in Illumina Connected Analytics and BaseSpace Sequence Hub. This genomics cloud computing environment features a collection of expert-preferred NGS data analysis apps that support a broad range of studies and simplify NGS data management. These apps provide scalable bioinformatics solutions for analysis of DNA sequencing data and other Illumina data.

The Illumina DRAGEN (Dynamic Read Analysis for GENomics) Bio-IT Platform provides highly accurate, ultra-rapid secondary analysis of NGS data, including data from whole-genome, exome, and targeted DNA sequencing experiments. Available in Illumina Connected Analytics, BaseSpace Sequence Hub, or on-premise, this platform offers a variety of accelerated secondary analysis pipelines, ranging from Germline to Somatic (T/N and Tumor-only), Joint Genotyping, Methylation, a stand-alone map and align pipeline, and more.

In addition, DRAGEN uses lossless genomic compression to rapidly compress and decompress FASTQ files. This technology reduces the data storage footprint by as much as 5x, all while preserving data integrity.

Illumina Connected Analytics and BaseSpace Apps for DNA Sequence Analysis:

  • Are accessible to any researcher, regardless of bioinformatics experience
  • Support a broad range of applications, including whole-genome, targeted, and exome sequencing data analysis, as well as de novo sequencing, methylation sequencing, metagenomics studies, and more
  • Integrate with Illumina sequencing systems
  • Present results in easy-to-interpret reports
  • Allow instant data sharing with collaborators around the world
