Overview

GoSeqIt is a spin-off project from the Technical University of Denmark. It gives microbiologists all around the world access to DNA sequencing analysis. This technology helps fight infectious diseases, using complex algorithms and high-performance computing. GoSeqIt provides both through a cloud. For this project, 10Clouds developed an AWS-based scalable infrastructure and user-friendly web tool.

Problem

Our client developed a system that can analyze DNA sequences to determine the type of bacteria and its characteristics. Before, this could only be answered by time-consuming and expensive laboratory analysis at the expense of fast patient recovery. Unfortunately, using the system was unintuitive and required powerful computers, and technical acumen.

Solution

10Clouds provided a platform that allows conducting DNA analysis through the internet, from any place on Earth. It computes and stores all data in the cloud and generates legible reports. The GoSeqIt Tools web-platform offers fast, reliable, confidential, and user-friendly characterization of bacteria based on DNA sequences.

Scalable Infrastructure

10Clouds designed a scalable AWS-based infrastructure, which delivers the results of genome analysis in a few minutes. If more computing power is needed, the system uses multiple servers at once. However, the number of active servers may also be lowered, which significantly reduces costs.
