Bring the power of deep learning to your genomic analysis with Clara Parabricks and GPUs.

Flexible Workflows

Take advantage of flexible workflows.

Create customized workflows by configuring tools in Workflow Description Language (WDL) and NextFlow.

Accelerate genomic analysis from end to end.

Use gold-standard tools.

Clara Parabricks provides GPU-accelerated versions of tools used every day by computational biologists and bioinformaticians—enabling significantly faster runtimes, workflow scalability, and lower compute costs.

The toolkit includes full compatibility with workflow languages and managers (WDL, NextFlow, Cromwell) to easily intertwine GPU- and CPU-powered tasks, as well as support for easy cloud deployment (AWS, GCP, Terra, and DNAnexus).

FASTQ to Binary Alignment Map (BAM) to VCF

Experience unmatched performance.

From FastQ to Variant Call Format (VCF), Clara Parabricks accelerates runtimes across a series of hardware configurations with NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. Genomic researchers can experience acceleration across every step of their analysis workflows, from alignment to sorting to variant calling. When more GPUs are used, a near-linear scaling in compute times is observed compared to CPU-only systems, allowing over 80X acceleration.

Analyze a Whole Human Genome at 30X Coverage in Less Than 30 Minutes

Deploy on premises, in the cloud, and at the edge.


Build on Premises.

Running on one NVIDIA DGX™ A100, Clara Parabricks analyzes up to 25,000 whole genomes per year (30X coverage) with Genomic Analysis Toolkit (GATK) best practices, with throughput scaling linearly beyond a single DGX A100.

Deploy in the cloud.

In the cloud, time is money. Choose from a range of GPU instances capable of analyzing genomes in a matter of minutes. For easy deployment, several cloud providers host Clara Parabricks as a ready-to-use image for immediate use.
