Hero Products Apollo for UKB


Achieving Insights at Scale

Recent years have seen a proliferation of large-scale genomic sequencing projects, with some targeting participant populations numbering in the millions. As these datasets become available, they offer the opportunity to meaningfully broaden our knowledge of the genomic character of different populations, the genetic nature of life-threatening illnesses, and other critical questions.
But this flood of sequencing data also presents real challenges. Chief among them: how to effectively analyze genomic data at unprecedented scale in combination with phenotypic/clinical data.

Explore & Analyze

Enter DNAnexus Apollo™. Built on the lightning-fast DNAnexus Platform, it empowers researchers to explore and analyze the full complement of genomic data available today from population-scale projects such as UK Biobank. And because it’s built to scale, it can handle even larger datasets as they become available.

Advance your research with the power to:

  • Easily create and analyze custom cohorts, based on shared genetic and phenotypic variants
  • Conduct GWAS, calculate allele frequencies, and more
  • Explore millions of phenotypic variants and billions of genotypes - in seconds
