High Volume DNA Analysis cannot exist without high performance compute. Not just because of the sheer size of the datasets, but also because of the complexity of the datasets. High performance computing software has become ‘high performance’ by getting rid of all weight which does not contribute to solving the problem at hand.

This ‘weight’ is what actually enables efficient and secure handling of sensitive data; without it, systems are not really usable.

GenAlice combines the best of both worlds, by running the ‘core engine’ as a database extension of the Oracle rdbms. This places high performance DNA analysis within the bounds of a WorldClass database: security, reliability and usability without loosing the processing power of a dedicated lightweight analysis engine.
