NVIDIA Clara™ Parabricks is a GPU-accelerated computational genomics application framework. It delivers high-throughput, high-accuracy DNA and RNA sequencing.
Clara Parabricks can be run on-premise or in the cloud
Robust HPC conducts training workshop that guides researchers on how to run their genomic analysis workloads with Clara Parabricks.
For R&D institutions that looking for a HPC cluster solution, Robust HPC provides the following:
How Clara Parabricks Is Making a Real-World Impact
Regeneron Genetics Center
See how Regeneron is using DeepVariant with Clara Parabricks to generate scalable, high-quality data that can be reproduced across the genomics community.
National Biobank of Thailand (NBT)
NBT reduced its whole genome sequencing data processing by four months and its individual user processing time from over 30 hours to just 1-2 hours with NVIDIA DGX A100 and Clara Parabricks.
Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen)
With NVIDIA Clara Parabricks and NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs, TGen sped up genomic sequencing analysis by 6X to help determine personalized treatments for children with rare neurological disorders.
Washington University in Saint Louis (WUSTL)
Integrating GPU-based steps with NVIDIA Clara Parabricks enabled Tychele Turner of WUSTL to drastically reduce the runtime for de novo variant calling.
The Parabricks Advantage
On a single server, the software can process more than 60 whole genomes per day
No need to sacrifice accuracy to reduce turnaround time. A suite of germline and somatic callers is available.
Create customized, accelerated pipelines by configuring over 33 tools for any specific pipeline or application need.
Reduce computing costs up to 50 percent by running 30–60X faster than CPU-only solutions.
