Edico: Processing genomes
Edico developing processor to improve speed of whole genome analysis
Next-generation sequencing technologies have reduced the time and cost to sequence whole genomes, but the computational time and resources needed to analyze the resulting data remain a bottleneck. Edico Genome Inc. is developing a processor that reduces the time to analyze genome sequences to less than half an hour without sacrificing accuracy.
Next-generation sequencing generates large digital data files comprising short segments of DNA. "What comes out of the sequencing machine is a digital puzzle with all
