We all have vast and complicated datasets buried within us, and genomics startup DNAnexus wants to set that data free. Or at least help scientists make sense of it.
DNAnexus wrapped up $15 million for its cloud-based platform that manages and analyzes large amounts of DNA data.
DNAnexus builds HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)-compliant solutions for genetic-sequencing facilities, diagnostic test providers, and research centers. Its technology provides a central hub where researchers can store and analyze large amounts of DNA data, with “unlimited scaling of computational and storage resources.”
As with all data, it’s what you do with it that matters. Scientists can also use DNAnexus’ platform to securely share data and collaborate with third parties such as universities, hospitals, statisticians, clinical labs, and biologists.
