Structural analysis at the molecular level is a major technical challenge of genomics. Hitachi High-Tech America, Inc. recognized this and formed the Life Informatics Center with a goal of building genomic structural analysis solutions that access the speed and scale of the cloud with the visual power and accessibility of a web browser. We have partnered with electronic whole-genome mapping leader Nabsys to combine their system with our Human Chromosome Explorer bioinformatics pipeline to create a low cost, scalable SV validation and discovery platform.

  • De novo human SV analysis requires long reads of DNA molecules and informatics that can capture and detangle the multi-dimensional complexities of these structural anomalies. Nabsys has developed the HD-Mapping platform to construct human whole genome maps providing routine, accurate, cost-effective analysis of large SVs. Hitachi Human Chromosome Explorer (HCE) is a powerful cloud-based analysis pipeline that performs de novo assembly (without the use of a reference), alignment and large SV detection in about an hour.

    The Nabsys/HCE system employs electronic detection to enable higher resolution and accuracy than is possible with optical mapping technologies. These features result in higher information content per single-molecule read, and the ability to construct high density maps with long-range information, with a reduction in the required length of DNA for unique placement of single-molecule reads in a genome.

    HCE then identifies high quality long reads as seeds from which map contigs can grow allowing for de novo genome assembly. High-performance cloud (HPC) computing enables the distribution of SV analysis across multiple compute nodes substantially reducing time to results.
