DNAnexus Platform Supports Clinical Whole Genome Sequencing Service from Garvan Institute

DNAnexus Inc. announced that the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia has selected the DNAnexus Platform to power its new Genome.One clinical whole genome testing company. Garvan uses DNAnexus to manage, analyze, and secure the massive quantities of genomic data generated by the center’s leading NGS technology including Illumina’s HiSeq X Ten. Garvan uses the DNAnexus Platform to support complex, multi-institution global collaborations as well as high-speed, cost-efficient analysis and delivery of sequence data across a worldwide network. The Garvan Institute’s new company, Genome.One offers clinical whole-genome sequencing services for diagnosing rare and genetic conditions. Genome.One represents the clinical extension of the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG), and benefits from the nearly 18-month relationship between DNAnexus and the Garvan Institute. Rather than traditional tests that analyze a single gene or multi-gene panel, this new service has the capacity to sequence and analyze the entire genome, including all 20,000 genes, in a single test. The new service provides a fast, accurate and comprehensive service, and is expected to increase the diagnosis rates of rare disorders from around twenty percent to 46%.
