Science Team

Our Expertise

Our science team has deep bioinformatics and cloud experience and understands your biological questions. Located in Silicon Valley, we are able to attract the best bioinformatics and computer science talent from top-tier technical schools such as MIT, Berkeley, and Stanford as well as leading organizations such as Lawrence Berkeley Lab and the Joint Genome Institute. Our team has published hundreds of scientific papers and participated in some of the most important genomics projects to date, including ENCODE.

Been There, Done That

We have worked with a broad spectrum of genomics industry segments, from non-profit academic labs to major pharmaceutical companies. No proposal is considered too large, as demonstrated through the CHARGE project, a collaboration between Baylor College of Medicine’s Human Genome Sequencing Center (HGSC), DNAnexus, and Amazon Web Services that enabled the largest genomic analysis project to have ever taken place in the cloud. We worked with HGSC to deploy its Mercury variant-calling pipeline on the DNAnexus cloud platform, processing 3,751 whole genomes and 10,940 exomes using 3.3 million core-hours with a peak of 20,800 cores and making Mercury available to 300 researchers participating in the global CHARGE consortium.

How to Get Started

Learn how DNAnexus can help you accelerate your science. Start the process with a brief science consultation to determine if DNAnexus is right for you. We’re confident you’re going to love it!

When you request a meeting, we bring an expert team of biologists, computer engineers, and genomic scientists to your research. Our scientists work with you to understand the dynamics of your organization and determine high-level requirements to quickly get you up and running with the DNAnexus platform.

“DNAnexus allows us to collaboratively analyze genomic data at all scales, from single samples and clinical trios to family-based studies and large cohorts, ultimately enabling the HGSC to drive gene discovery and analysis for Mendelian disorders, complex disease, and everything in between.”
