Falcon Accelerated Genomics Pipelines2020-06-30T02:34:19+00:00


Accelerate all your genome analytics across multiple clouds

Flexibility Powered with Acceleration

Next generation sequencing (NGS) technology has drastically reduced the costs of Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS). This is of great value to the industry of precision medicine all the way from the researchers to the genetic counselors as it makes it cost efficient to study the entire genome to provide a more complete view of structural variants. In return, these larger data sets create a computational challenge for bioinformaticians. Providing variant reports based on the raw reads files requires leveraging complex algorithms that can take days if not months to process.

Falcon Computing provides a genome analytics solution that solves this computational challenge by enabling high-performance computing that is simple to use. Delivered as an end-to-end solution on the public cloud or on-prem, the Falcon Accelerated Genomic Pipelines (FAGP) provides users the flexibility to access or skip any step of the pipeline to provide the best tools for your data.




Falcon’s Cost Optimization Engine uses a combination of your NGS sample volume and your time constraints to provide a custom platform that delivers to your exact time and budget needs.

Users can expect 50% cost savings while experiencing 15X acceleration for variant calling pipelines. Whether it’s a few samples per month or higher than 10,000 sampler/year we have you covered!
