Accelerated Genomic Analysis Applying Massive Parallel Computing to Genomics Secondary AnalysisWhitepaper
November 15, 2018
This whitepaper presents results from a new method developed by Parabricks run on a SkyScale Accelerated Cloud system with up to 16 NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs that greatly reduces that time...
Modern genomics is characterized by rapid production of vast amounts of raw sequencing data (sequencing reads) using next-generation sequencing (NGS) and the equally massive computing requirements for conversion of that data into useful results.
That conversion from sequence reads to usable results is through public and private genome analysis toolkits, of which the most popular is the open-source Broad Institute Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK).
