Genuity Science Unveils Genomics Partnership with Google Cloud

  • Genuity Science’s massively scalable genomics database management system and clinical and research applications will be available to Google Cloud Platform users
  • Google Cloud BigQuery, the open source DeepVariant and other tools will be integrated for use with the Genuity Science platform
  • The companies plan to work on additional tools, capabilities and APIs going forward, to serve the global genomics community for the benefit of people worldwide

Genuity Science (formerly known as WuXi NextCODE) today announced a partnership with Google Cloud that aims to deliver comprehensive genomics capabilities to partners and customers worldwide.

The partnership, announced today at the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition being held this week in Las Vegas, includes hosting WuXi NextCODE’s core suite of capabilities on Google Cloud and its availability on the Google Cloud Launcher marketplace. These include GORdb, WuXi NextCODE secondary analysis, the Sequence Miner case-control research application, and the Clinical Sequence Analyzer clinical interpretation system. At the same time, key Google genomics and research tools will be integrated and deployable in tandem with the WuXi NextCODE platform, beginning with the DeepVariant secondary analysis pipeline, alongside other open-source analysis pipelines and tools available through Google Cloud Platform. The companies plan to launch the first phase of the offering – at the BioIT World Conference & Expo in Boston in May.

“WuXi NextCODE has been a pioneer of large-scale genomics, and we are thrilled to welcome them as a Google Cloud Partner,” said Jonathan Sheffi, Product Manager, Genomics & Life Sciences at Google. “Our collaboration aims to create a powerful interoperable suite of capabilities to derive insight from sequence data.”
