A web-based service for next-gen DNA data storage, analysis, and visualization

DNAnexus represents a new paradigm in DNA sequence storage and analysis, marrying cloud computing infrastructure with scalable systems design and advanced bioinformatics. From the very beginning, our design has been guided by the idea that “Megabase” has been replaced by “Gigabase” as the unit of sequence data, and that Terabase sequencing runs and large-scale whole-genome sequencing will soon be the norm.

By building our infrastructure from the ground up to run on Amazon Web Services, the world’s leading cloud computing provider, our solution delivers not just software, but also all the computing and storage infrastructure. 100,000s of CPUs and 100s of petabytes of storage are available to you through DNAnexus, which acquires those resources on-demand, allowing our pricing to mirror your usage.

DNAnexus provides solutions for both DNA sequencing centers growing their next-gen capacity, and the researchers working with next-gen sequence data. Our web-based platform solves the data management and analysis challenges common to both with a single, unified system. We support sequencing operations and research organizations of virtually any size, with absolutely no upfront hardware investment needed.
