Centralise your bioinformatics analysis and experience how easy it is to initiate projects, schedule runs and share results.
End-to-end integration and secure data upload
With a lightweight Service Connector, Bluebee securely connects your sequencers to its supercomputing clusters that run in private cloud data centers. The Bluebee Service Connector takes care of encryption, authentication and ultra-fast data transfer. Once the analysis is complete, results can be viewed online and data can be retrieved in an automated way for use with any interpretation software.
Flexible pipeline configuration
Pipelines can be configured either through the web portal in an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, by way of scripting or API’s. We can migrate your existing NGS data processing pipelines on the platform for you, or you can set-up pipelines yourself. Ready to use reference pipelines and peer-validated pipelines allow you to get started with very limited set-up and configuration.
It is Bluebee’s belief that the need for faster and cheaper analytics should not be addressed by using short-cut algorithms. Good science remains essential. With Bluebee it is perfectly feasible to continue using gold-standard algorithms such as GATK or BWA, to obtain high sensitivity and specificity, while still achieving unparalleled throughput objectives.
Local data processing
Bluebee operates in globally distributed high-performance computing centers (we have local datacenters in all major European countries, in the US and in Asia). Processing and storage of the genomics data are contractually guaranteed in the region of your choice through “Data Residency Control”. This control is essential to comply with local regulatory requirements stating genomics data can not leave the country and to operate according to local data privacy regulations.
All data is encrypted both in-flight and at-rest stages. The combination of digital signing and encryption techniques ensures the origin and integrity of all data flowing across the platform. All activities are tracked in the platform’s audit logs, assuring complete audit trails for regulatory requirements to be met.
Controlled sharing and collaboration
We offer fine-grained access control and security profiles. Within each project, a project owner can define access and roles as well as activate permission-based sharing and collaboration options, both internally and cross-organization. Sharing is not restricted to just NGS data. Configured pipelines, processing information and reports, can be securely shared without unnecessary data transfers. The platform can be accessed securely from anywhere, even on a mobile device.
Lower your costs
Eliminate time and capital expenditure of creating and maintaining in-house clusters. Bluebee offers an “all-in” price per sample and we take care of automatic provisioning and de-provisioning of resources, meaning you only pay for what you use, without overhead. Save time and improve efficiency through automation and experience how an increased computational throughput improves the overall efficiency of your lab, and not just of the bioinformatics part.
Interactive data exploration
Data visualization is an essential component of genomic data analysis. We integrated the Broad Institute’s Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) because it is a high-performance viewer that efficiently handles large heterogeneous data sets, while providing a smooth and intuitive user experience at all levels of genome resolution. IGV supports a wide variety of data types, including array-based and next generation sequencing data, and genomic annotations.
