About SeqCentral:

SeqCentral, LLC, aims to provide and harness the high-performance computational power of the cloud as a usable, collaborative, online service to all members of the computational genomics community.

We believe that your data is your data and that the abundance of digital genetic information from next-generation sequencing machines requires next-generation computational infrastructure, interfaces, insight, and innovation.

With access to the cloud through SeqCentral, LLC, you as a researcher can easily collaborate and continue your own research without having to be concerned with the computational complexities involved in creating the highly-scalable, highly-reliable, highly-distributed software necessary for large-scale genetic sequence search.

We want you to focus on your own science and not computer science.
