Eureka Genomics’ High-Throughput Sequencing and Bioinformatics Services Highlighted at “Now-Generation Sequencing” Conference

Balancing high-throughput sequencing and related bioinformatics analysis between a research group’s internal efforts and specialized service providers can both speed results to difficult biological questions and provide cost-effective access to the latest technology, says Eureka Genomics (EG). The company’s unique capabilities and services and how they can help in “Finding the Right Balance” will be the topic of discussion at a “Java and Jive” session on Wednesday March 17, 8:15 am at the Now-Generation Sequencing conference being held at the Hilton San Diego Resort in San Diego, CA.

“We take pride in developing a consultive relationship with each and every client,” said Heather Koshinsky, Ph.D., Eureka Genomics’ Chief Scientific Officer. “As biologists ourselves, we understand that proper experimental design and library preparation all add to the quality of the sequencing. This, followed by application of the most appropriate bioinformatics tools, results in EG’s ability to solve our customers’ biggest genomics questions.” EG’s robust, proprietary and highly efficient algorithms use an “exact” model, avoiding a heuristic approximation approach, and together have yielded solutions to previously intractable biological problems.

“As a manufacturer of automated sample preparation instrumentation, IntegenX concentrates on reliability, reproducibility and full integration of applications. As we develop a NGS library preparation application, Eureka Genomics has provided IntegenX not only cost effective and timely results, but their bioinformatics capability let us know immediately the high quality of our automated NGS library preparations,” said Stevan Jovanovich, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of IntegenX.

Range of Services and Latest Technologies

Eureka Genomics offers a range of services, from library generation from a variety of samples types, to sequence data analysis and gene annotation. Cutting-edge technological capabilities developed in support of the company’s own discovery efforts are applied to its service customer’s everyday problems.

“This sets us apart from the competition,” Dr. Koshinsky continued. “We excel in both the 'routine' and the 'non-routine,' and thus can offer the complete solutions to our customers’ problems when needed, or can address the simplest request.” EG currently performs data generation with the Illumina GAIIx but plans to add access to other sequencing platforms based on its customers’ interests.

Expanding Services Globally

Building off the successful close of $3.7mil in financing last week, Eureka Genomics announced that some of this funding will be used to grow their service organization and to continue their goal for “Best in Breed" among the growing field of high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics service providers. EG plans to grow its global sales and marketing and expand its service offerings into Europe and South East Asia.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy. Now with the scaling of the Internet of Things it becomes an interesting question – I've heard numbers from 200 billion devices next year up to a trillion in the next 10 to 15 years," explained Johannes Lintzen, Vice President of Sales at Utimaco, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Code Halos - aka "digital fingerprints" - are the key organizing principle to understand a) how dumb things become smart and b) how to monetize this dynamic. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Brown, AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions, outlined research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the Internet of Things opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition.
