How to achieve standardised secondary genomics analysis with Illumina’s DRAGEN
DRAGEN is now available on Deploit enabling bioinformaticians to perform federated, standardised and cloud-native secondary genomics analysis.
The advent and refinement of visualisation tools has allowed scientists of all programming levels to unearth the valuable insights that lie in these complex file types, which can consist of thousands to billions of data points. One such tool is the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV), a high-performance visualisation tool for the interactive exploration of large genomic files.
In this blog post, we will show you how it is possible to run any of the stable release nf-core pipelines with ease over the Cloud by using the Deploit platform. We have used the RNA-seq pipeline as an example because it is the most popular of all the nf-core pipelines. The following can also be done for any of the nf-core pipelines.
The democratisation of Next Generation Sequencing technologies has made omics data more available than ever before. Bioinformaticians are now confronted with tackling the NGS data deluge in order to deliver actionable insights. Transforming raw data into impactful insights requires bioinformaticians to process omics data with bioinformatics pipelines. To date, however, no validated standards have been widely established by the bioinformatics community.
The Francis Crick Institute & Lifebit are co-hosting the London Bioinformatics Frontiers Conference on June 17th & 18th. We’re excited to round up the best of the best in terms of speakers covering a variety of topics, including how to standardise and scale analysis using Nextflow, Containers & Cloud.
