Fast and cost-effective whole-genome analysis
BISC customer was participating in a public bid for a large research project, whereby whole genome sequencing data (50x coverage) would be generated for tens of thousands of samples. In order for them to be successful in this bid, they required to have a bioinformatics analysis pipeline capable of handling such large amounts of data in a high-throughput fashion.
BISC Global built a pipeline according to the following specifications:
• Read alignment, germline SNV/Indel/SV/CN variant calling
• Joint genotyping and extensive QC
• Pipeline is Hg38-, HLA- and ALT-aware.
• Broad Institute’s GATK best practices
• $5 analysis per genome
BISC Global built a pipeline which annotates up to 150 50x Whole Genome sequencing samples. With this information the customer was able to enter the public bid, which they won.
