Good reasons to invest in a CLC Genomics Server

  • Compute resource management: Central execution platform with flexible queuing system, designed for your bioinformatics analysis and services.
  • Flexible: Based on a three-tier system architecture to offer maximum security and flexibility within fields of biology and bioinformatic computing.
  • Premium system-clients: Offers maximum client-flexibility with support for our user-friendly and award winning CLC Genomics Workbench as a premium system-client.
  • Customizable: Highly customizable on both client-side and server-side using our SDK or various command line tools.
  • Scalable: Highly scalable with support for CLC Server Nodes.
  • Advanced data I/O: Offers an advanced and customizable data-import/export framework, that also can be used for data conversion.
  • Shared data: Store your data on central storage. This can be either a file system, CLC Bioinformatics Database or on a custom designed database scheme.


CLC Genomics Server gives you a unique and stable software architecture core that makes it possible to apply a range of bioinformatics analysis-services on your high-throughput sequencing data.

The server platform makes it possible to deploy your own scientific software services in a centralized three-tier software architecture, with full support of your existing IT infrastructure. Examples could be existing tools from the open source and commercial communities or tools you have developed in-house.

The server administrators can furthermore decide if certain groups should not be allowed to run certain analyses. This can be controlled also for each external application configuration .
