Singular Genomics Collaborates with NVIDIA to Deliver Market-Leading Next-Generation Sequencing and Analysis Speeds
Singular’s G4 Sequencing Platform with NVIDIA Clara Parabricks secondary analysis tools delivers accelerated results for prominent applications including whole genome sequencing
LA JOLLA, Calif., May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Singular Genomics Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMIC), a company leveraging novel next-generation sequencing (NGS) and multiomics technologies to empower researchers and clinicians, today announced the company is collaborating with NVIDIA to validate and optimize the performance of the G4 Sequencing Platform with NVIDIA Clara Parabricks for secondary analysis including alignment and variant calling with over 50 tools for germline and somatic workflows.
This collaboration will enable access to Clara Parabricks for researchers and clinicians using Singular’s G4 next-generation instrument, enabling users to run accelerated bioinformatics pipelines for key applications, such as whole genome sequencing, exome sequencing, RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq), and targeted gene panels. This solution will be seamlessly available to customers through Amazon Web Services Cloud implementation or on-premises servers that have NVIDIA GPUs.
“We are thrilled to bring NVIDIA’s powerful analytical genomics workflows to Singular Genomics customers as a plug-and-play solution,” said Jorge Velarde, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy at Singular Genomics. “This collaboration further strengthens our industry-leading speed, providing researchers and clinicians with an opportunity to achieve significantly faster time to results. We look forward to working with NVIDIA and plan to disclose new data in the coming months that demonstrates the optimized performance through these platforms.”
NVIDIA technology is used throughout genomics to accelerate traditional and deep learning analytics both within and off instrument for primary, secondary and tertiary genomic analysis. The G4 Sequencing Platform utilizes the NVIDIA RTX A6000 for AI-enabled basecalling. This announcement extends the collaboration to downstream workflows.
“Time to results is crucial across most NGS applications, and we believe that Clara Parabricks and NVIDIA’s best-in-class GPU architecture combined with the speed and flexibility of the G4 Sequencing Platform is a natural fit,” said George Vacek, Global Director of Genomics Alliances at NVIDIA. “The solution will be impactful to the genomics community and contribute to the advancement of science and medicine.”
