Open Data Sets
The AWS Open Data Program (ODP) helps democratize data access by making it readily available in Amazon S3, providing the research community with a single documented source of truth. For a complete list of the >40 genomics open data sets available, see The AWS Open Data Program (ODP).
Ancestry relies on Amazon EFS to enable multiple scientists to perform genomics research, scale compute and storage up or down, and onboard scientists faster.
Global genomics software company Lifebit Biotech Ltd. used AWS to build the first federated analysis system for genomic data, providing security, compliance, and accelerated disease research.
Biogen, a life sciences company dedicated to eradicating neurological diseases, deployed a cloud-first solution using AWS infrastructure to process and analyze medical data from 500,000 participants in the UK Biobank.
The Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance built its GenoVic system on AWS. GenoVic enables genomic testing for rare diseases and cancer, improving testing workflow efficiency, scaling to meet demand, and enabling onboarding of new testing labs in months. Located in Victoria, Australia, the Alliance brings together leading hospitals and research organizations. GenoVic, a shared clinical system for genomics testing, uses AWS Lambda for serverless compute, AWS Batch to schedule batch processing jobs, and Amazon S3 for storing genomic data.
Illumina is using AWS to save close to $400,000 monthly, fuel global expansion, and help genomic researchers accelerate time-to-discovery. The company provides hardware and software for genome sequencing and analysis.
DNAnexus delivers a platform as a service for genomic researchers at more than 100 enterprises across the globe. Using AWS, DNAnexus scales to tens of millions of core hours of analysis and stores petabytes of data in a HIPAA-compliant environment.
