Seeking to illuminate bottle genomics in the use of genomic data Illumina announces the launch of Illumina Connected Analytics (ICA). This new and integrated bioinformatics package provides a comprehensive, private, cloud-based data platform that allows customers to manage, analyze, and explore large volumes of multi-omic data in a secure, scalable, and flexible environment.
Accessible through a web portal or through a rich set of APIs, ICA leverages technology Illumina acquired through its 2020 buyout of BlueBee to reduce extra work and possible human-error associated with combining multiple datasets, through a direct sequencer-to-platform transfer of data onto the private Illumina cloud. The new solution gives users the flexibility to run custom analyses and access options, such as Illumina’s DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform. Optimized for high-throughput, ICA also supports the complex storage, aggregation, and querying of multi-omic sequencing and array data from around the world.
