Computing platform for reproducible research in bioinformatics, genomics and life science

Made by researchers for researchers: analyse genomics data and share results in a fully cloud-based bioinformatics cluster

How does InsideDNA work?

Your pocket bioinformatics cluster, and much more.

Research platform

Upload genomics data via your web browser or terminal utility; search for a tool from a pool of 1000+ bioinformatics tools; specify settings for your analysis and the capacity of a compute node; get the results quickly and effortlessly.

Sharing service

Save and share your analysis as iMethod – an executable bundle comprising of tool, tool settings, and datasets, and stored as a simple web URL. Send it over to your colleagues or insert into a research article for full reproducibility.

Tool publishing service

Request or publish a new bioinformatics tool simply by providing a link to a GitHub/BitBucket repository and access the tool instantly in a web terminal or in a toolbox.

Why InsideDNA?

The first platform in life science for researchers at any level: from bachelor students to professors; from labs to SMEs.

Scalable cluster

Sign up and scale out to hundreds of nodes in 1 click: each time you submit an analysis, the cloud cluster expands automatically. No need for IT and maintenance – focus instead on your research. Access nodes from 1 to 206Gb of RAM, and up to 32 nodes.

Limitless storage

Stop worrying about storage limitations and backups. Grow your personal cloud storage space as your analysis advances.

1000+ key tools and pipelines

Access 1000+ open source bioinformatics tools to analyse your data. No installation headache. Run tools via a simple GUI or via a web terminal. Chain tools together into interactive bioinformatics pipelines.


Seamlessly share datasets, tools, and tasks and collaborate on common projects. Invite as many members as needed for the project and work together via a simple GUI or via a web terminal.

Reproducible research

Drive more citations to your papers with the iMethods – an executable bundle comprising of tools, tool settings, and datasets, and sharable as a simple web URL. Make your research fully transparent to others and accessible to search engines.

Terminal access

Get most of the cloud with a web terminal: access tools, tasks and data, just like in a conventional cluster. Instantly see data stored on the cloud, write custom scripts and submit tasks from the web terminal.

Connection to key biodatabases (coming soon)

Access public life science databases in one click with built-in authentication. Explore large genomics data and analyse this data in your own projects. TCGA, AutismSpeaks, and NCBI just to name a few

Tools and pipelines publishing (coming soon)

Publish your open source tools and drive more citations to your research. Share pipelines to make research open and accessible.

Docker containers

Grab a Docker container and play at your own machine or upload your own Docker and gain full access to what is inside.

What our users say?

What people that tried InsideDNA think and how it helped them save hundreds of hours

  • “Yay! A non-codingbiologist’'s biggest dream coming true @inside_dna a platform for running bioinformatic tools in the cloud”
  • “You are fantastic. As a kid with no university cluster or good computer to run tools on, you guys are my saviors.”
  • “Inside DNA makes our limited server space issues less of a problem”
  • “Hassle-free bioinformatics. Just what I need. Looking forward to an expanding list of tools.”
  • “The website provides useful tools, and tutorials to use them, without having to install each tool individually on one's own computer, or find out the commands to run them on the command line.”
