DNAnexus is a software technology company that aims to be the DNA data platform of the future. Fueled by technological advances spanning biochemistry, microfabrication, optics, and high-performance systems design, DNA sequencing is advancing at an unprecedented rate of approximately 10-fold improvement in cost and throughput every 18 months. As a result, data output and compute requirements have vastly outstripped Moore's law, shifting the bottleneck toward the data management challenges. Soon it will be possible to sequence a full human genome for well under $1,000, making sequencing the first million genomes commercially viable, but will require compute infrastructure on the order of 100,000 CPUs and Exabytes of storage.
