Customers accelerating research with Microsoft Genomics solutions
PacBio and Children’s Mercy Hospital
“We are excited to partner with Microsoft to improve the value of SMRT Sequencing to the Clinical/Translational Research Community. We believe combining our efforts will not only allow us to develop innovative solutions to improve end user experience but ultimately transform lives.”
Jonas Korlach, Ph.D.
Chief Scientific Officer, PacBio
“Leveraging Azure CycleCloud for analysis, we were able to save analysis time by 6 to 10 times and reduce the cost of analysis by roughly three times. This will enable us to expand our capacity to undertake more analysis and testing.”
Shirley Heggarty, Ph.D., FRCPath
Director, Regional Genetics Laboratory, Belfast City Hospital
“At Biotia, by using Cromwell on Azure to back our compute-intensive genomics workflows, we have achieved substantial parallelization for our novel next-generation sequencing [NGS-based] COVID-19 detection and characterization assay.”
Director of Software Engineering, Biotia
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
“Access to high-quality clinical genomic data, generated leveraging Microsoft Genomics service and streamed to St. Jude Cloud, will help further research in precision medicine for childhood cancer and other diseases.”
Dr. Jinghui Zhang
Chair, Department of Computational Biology
