Easy Genomics – An open-source digital solution to simplify genomic sequencing for labs around the globe.

Let us show you how Easy Genomics is here to change the future of public health!

Genomic sequencing is a complex and costly process. If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that genomic sequencing will play a major part in the future of (public) health.

Open-source digital solution

Together with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Two Bulls/DEPT® developed an open-source digital solution to simplify genomic sequencing for labs around the globe.

To excel in curing diseases, providing care for the sick, advancing medical treatments, and promoting public health awareness, we have taken a significant step forward. Traditionally, executing genomics pipelines require technical expertise and an intensive, complex and expensive process to set up and run. However, AWS ingeniously identified the potential to simplify genomic sequencing through the creation of an open-source digital solution. In pursuit of this transformative idea, they partnered with us, Two Bulls/DEPT®, as the primary digital collaborator. In addition to collaborating with the disease and disease prevention experts at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene to create this solution that is affordable, accessible, equitable and secure. Together, we successfully developed this groundbreaking solution, that has a meaningful impact on society and in the field of health and digital technology.

Advancing bioinformatic technology

The solution had to be simple to use, safe, seamless and scalable. With the launch of Easy Genomics, it assures laboratories wishing to scale their genomic sequencing capabilities without having to invest in technical training or further staff, as well as having access to a tool that makes it simple to run genomic pipelines on their lab tests. With Easy Genomics, public health agencies can achieve the following:

  • Seamlessly manage laboratory sequencing datasets and start pipelines with minimal training or specialised knowledge.
  • Enable secure collaboration to boost productivity.
  • Rapidly increase analysis capabilities using the AWS cloud platform.
  • Minimise infrastructure costs by paying only for the needed resources.

Solving a critical gap in health labs

The collaborative efforts have resulted in a game-changing solution that’s already revolutionising the future of public health bioinformatics. We have created a seamless program that generates an interface that any non-technical user can use to run their genomic workloads in just three easy steps. Easy Genomics solves a critical gap in public health laboratories’ genomics sequencing ability to scale in times of crisis.

Paving the way for the future of health

  • The launch of Easy Genomics has seen a 95% reduction in training time required.
  • The Association of Public Health Laboratories is rolling out Easy Genomics across 137 public health labs in USA.
  • Easy Genomics is democratising genomic sequencing which means communicable diseases like COVID-19 can have their variants far better tracked by public health authorities.

Easy Genomics presents an exciting new opportunity to make pipelines and data more accessible to end users while realizing the benefits of scalable, cost-efficient pipeline execution on AWS infrastructure
