NVIDIA Gives COVID-19 Researchers Free Access Genome-sequencing software for GPUs

NVIDIA is offering COVID-19 Researchers free access to Parabricks genome-sequencing software for GPUs. “Starting today, NVIDIA will provide a free 90-day license to Parabricks to any researcher in the worldwide effort to fight the novel coronavirus. Based on the well-known Genome Analysis Toolkit, Parabricks uses GPUs to accelerate by as much as 50x the analysis of sequence data. We recognize this pandemic is evolving, so we’ll monitor the situation and extend the offer as needed.”

Parabricks and SkyScale Raise the Performance Bar for Genomic Analysis

“In the modern world of genomics where analysis of 10’s of thousands of genomes is required for research, the cost per genome and the number of genomes per time are critical parameters. Parabricks adaption of the GATK4 Best Practice workflows running seamlessly on SkyScale’s Accelerated Cloud provides unparalleled price and throughput efficiency to help unlock the power of the human genome.”

DDN and Parabricks Accelerate Genome Analysis

Today DDN announced a Parabricks technology solution that provides massive acceleration for analysis of human genomes. The breakthrough platform combines GPU supercomputing performance with DDN’s Parallel Flash Data Platforms for fastest time to results, and enables unprecedented capabilities for high-throughput genomics analysis pipelines. The joint solution also ensures full saturation of GPUs for maximum efficiency and provides analysis capabilities that previously required thousands of CPUs to engage.
