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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.
