The future of precision drug discovery looks bright

DNAnexus Apolloaccelerates precision drug discovery by unlocking the power of collaboration to draw critical insights from omics data.



The Promise - and the Challenge - of Big Data

Precision drug discovery requires collecting and analyzing huge volumes of omics and clinical data. These datasets are incredibly rich resources, but most legacy and home-grown informatics tools can't cope with their size and complexity. Precision medicine programs can also be hampered by siloed data sources, underpowered collaboration tools, and the burden of complex and always changing regulatory and security requirements..

Unlock the Power of Cutting-Edge Collaborative Analysis

DNAnexus Apollo™ supports precision drug discovery programs by empowering scientists and clinicians to explore and analyze omics and clinical data together, in a single environment, built on a robust, scalable cloud platform. Apollo lets them share data, tools, and analyses easily and securely with peers and collaborators everywhere - whether they're on another floor, or another continent.

  • Easily explore and analyze the largest, most complex datasets
  • Simplify and strengthen team collaboration
  • Work at the speed of thought, on a scalable cloud platform
  • Build and explore cohorts with just a few clicks
  • Future-proof your environment with a platform that's purpose-built for advanced informatics

Product Features

Scalability & Performance

DNAnexus Apollo™ is designed to scale to handle complex analyses of huge datasets. For compute-intensive jobs, on-demand Spark clusters ensure top-notch performance - speeding up your research, and getting you to insights in record time

Powerful Cohort Browser

DNAnexus Apollo™ is equipped with the only cohort browser that can easily handle the scale and complexities of the datasets used in precision drug discovery efforts. Browse and explore thousands of phenotype fields and millions of genomic variants, build and compare cohorts, and carry out complex analyses - no coding required.

Flexible Tools to Work the Way You Do

Run batch analyses with ease, using DNAnexus Apollo™'s robust, scalable, and ready-to-use pipelines, or bring in your custom-built applications. Select from a wide range of charts and visualizations, such as Manhattan Plots and Kaplan-Meier Plots, to create meaningful, actionable views of your results. Take your analyses further in a JupyterLab Notebook - without having to leave DNAnexus Apollo™

Project-Based Data Sharing

Accelerate the pace of discovery by assembling data, analysis tools, and visualizations in one place so that team members can all perform their own interactive explorations or rapidly generate and test multiple hypotheses. With project-based sharing and fine-grained access control, work smoothly and securely with partners and peers around the world
