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.
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.
