Accelerating Scientific Research to Discovery
At Digicon, we understand and appreciate the tremendous challenges that the research community faces in conducting and supporting biological studies. BioGenLink, a suite of bioinformatics services, is designed to provide a one-stop shop approach for accelerating scientific research to discovery.
Consisting of industry-leading next-generation sequencing (NGS) services, high-performance NGS analysis software, on-demand bioinformatics support, and scalable cloud-based platform-as-a-service (PaaS) models, BioGenLink provides a single-study mindset to historically phased efforts, increasing productivity and collaboration while reducing time and cost. These service areas may stand alone or be combined, providing research organizations the flexibility to support new or ongoing studies.
BioGenLink is broken down into multiple components. They are as follows:
NGS Analysis Software
BioGenLink is powered by the first NGS data analysis software platform to harness Hadoop® big data technology available on the cloud. This scalable, open model shortens analysis times by up to 100x, compared to the vast majority of legacy systems built on highly dated technology that fail to meet the speed and scalability requirements of today’s research environments. As a result, historically prolonged analyses are completed in hours, and hours of work are reduced to minutes. Combined with additional efficiency-enhancing features, BioGenLink dramatically increases productivity for biologists and bioinformaticians alike.
Drag & Drop Interface
Bioinformatics as a Service (BaaS):
Digicon’s BaaS team provides on-demand support to include project and study consultation, NGS analysis, pipeline and workflow development, and genomic data management. Our BaaS service improves accessibility and affordability of bioinformatics resources to the research community.
Our team has knowledge and research experience in the following areas:
- Genomic Research
- Cancer Genomics
- Agriculture & Plant Genomics
- Infectious & Rare Disease Discovery
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
The explosive growth in data generation has placed extreme demands on existing computing and storage resources. In response, Digicon engineers provide secure, highly scalable, high-performance computing and cloud infrastructure services for support of genomic data storage management and analysis. Partnering with industry-leading cloud service providers (e.g., Amazon Web Services [AWS], Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud), we provide vendor-agnostic client solutions.
*BioGenLink’s analysis platform is currently made available on AWS and on-premises environments.
BioGenLink’s extensive partner network provides certified, industry-standard solutions for genome sequencing to include a wide range of analyses, such as:
- Whole Genome Sequencing
- De Novo Assembly
