Tame the genomic datanami

Tame the genomic datanami with Lena,
Enancio's solution for lossless genomic compression

Research in Life sciences,
a field undergoing profound transformations

The arrival of high throughput DNA sequencing technology has created a deluge of biological data, thrusting scientists into the digital age. The consequences of this information tsunami are far-reaching and have complexified the management, visualization and analysis of the associated data. Yet this mass of data contains infinite potential for great discoveries. To exploit these possibilities, the mastery of IT innovations is crucial.

Enancio’s innovation is focused on genomic data compression with clear objectives: speeding-up NGS analyses, lowering storage cost, lowering internal network traffic while preserving your data integrity.

Speed-up NGS transfer and analysis
Reduce storage costs dramatically

Lena’s compression combines high compression ratio and ultra-fast compression speed. To tell you the truth we haven’t found faster!

Lena is a software specialized in genomic data compression for both FASTQ and BAM format. The technology was developed by Guillaume Rizk, CTO and co-founder of Enancio at the National Research Institute of Informatic and Automation (INRIA) in Rennes, France in 2015.

The original compression software has evolved in order to perfectly fit into NGS analysis workflow.
