TAIPEI, TAIWAN, Nov. 29, 2019 – WASAI first attended The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), held in Houston USA on October 15-19 2019, to demonstrate “All-In-One DNA Accelerated Solution” for the genomics secondary analysis. ASHG 2019 gathered 6,500 researchers and at least 250 companies around the globe to participate the event. Also, it held many academic forums of human genetics and genome technology forums. ASHG is the largest and most historical seminar around the world.
Within three days of exhibition, we had good communications with many researchers regarding the actual pipeline application and talked with professionals around the globe about how to optimize the genomic sequencing process and its speed. Currently, GATK Best Practice process is still the main tool for genomic analysis, so WASAI provides a software/hardware integration solution of optimizing BWA-MEM algorithm, which enables the testing results not only to maintain the accuracy from the original software but also to decrease the time consuming while processing data analysis. Everyone gives affirmation for WASAI’s solution to practically integrate GATK with higher processing speed. In this event, we also met many researchers from Taiwan who recognized WASAI’s efforts highly so they are introducing potential partnerships for further collaboration opportunities.
After ASHG 2019, we consider it as a valuable activity to attend for it extended our local connections and also brought back useful feedbacks from event participants and manufacturers to have a deeper understanding regarding the market’s need. The useful information is going to be fruitful for our future product design and development. WASAI aims to provide more multi-integration solutions for ASHG 2020 next year held in San Diego USA.
