Samsung Genome SDS: Not content with just creating your mobile phone

Samsung has been in the news recently for being in a patent war with Apple. Now they are creating waves of a different kind.

They have just launched a web based analysis for Illumina and Solid data.

For RNA-seq, Solid is analysed using Bioscope and Tophat/Cufflinks is used for Illumina.

One thing they have over the edge over competitors is their ability to do web transfer of data at 10x the speed of FTP

They have some preliminary benchmark data here

SOLiD 5500 and 454 data is notably missing from the platforms supported. Nevertheless still worth a browse I guess.
