31 August 2010
CLC bio/PSSC Labs
CLC bio and PSSC Labs have developed CLC Genomics Factory, for assembly, read mapping, and subsequent downstream analysis of very large amounts of high-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing data. Built as a high-performance bioinformatics appliance, CLC Genomics Factory comes in three different sizes with varying numbers of compute nodes, capable of processing the data output from up to 10 Illumina HiSeq2000 or 7 Life Technologies SOLiD 4 systems.
CLC Genomics Factory is built around CLC bio's enterprise platform, including the award-winning CLC Genomics Server, as well as all of CLC bio's accelerated algorithms for full-genome assembly and analysis. Multiple licenses for CLC Genomics Workbench enable users to interface with the server software through either a user-friendly graphical user interface or, optionally, a command line interface. CLC Genomics Factory includes also support for CLC bio's Software Developer Kit, for those wishing to integrate third-party systems and software.
CLC Genomics Factory includes a master node, multiple job nodes, as well as varying amount of storage.
