TAIPEI, TAIWAN, April. 30, 2020 –The need for high performance in the Life Science field reaches an explosive growth along with the development of next-generation sequencing. HPC (High Performance Computer) becomes the inevitable factor while dealing with mega data. However, when it comes to managing a cluster of High Performance Computer for mega data analysis, both purchase and operation costs are pain points. WASAI technology provides a genomics analysis acceleration solution to fulfill the need for high performance, low cost,and data consistency in genomic data analysis.
WASAI's mission is to accelerate high performance data analysis; therefore, we develop a genome sequencing acceleration platform based on FPGA. It reduces the analytical time for human genome variants detection on a single server from originally several days spending to less than 7 hours. The overall SNPs and INDELs precision adopt the standard benchmark of precisionFDA, which also matches the international standard, GiAB (Genome in A Bottle).
With the maturity of genome sequencing technology, the Cost Per Human Genome declines rapidly since 2007 year by year. Every country has the national projects of genome analysis, hoping to know the influence of genomic mutation, population-based cohort study, rare diseases and cancers. WASAI provides a total solution, an AI computing acceleration platform for genome sequencing analysis, aiming four strengths: the faster, lower-cost, more accurate, and easier-to-use characters. In this way, the ecosystem of genomic analysis can be completed, and it helps to earn more evidence to prove the value and potential applications of genomics in modern medicine.
