Accelerating the DNA Sequencing Variant Calling Pipeline
Abstract:
Learn about the best practice variant calling pipeline that drives every DNA sequencing project in the world be it for research, industry or to diagnose a patient in critical condition. Here we present the different approaches to optimize and accelerate key parts of this pipeline. First we will give you an overview of the process and how researchers around the world are using DNA sequencing data to understand complex and rare variants and their associations with disease. Second we will show you the work we have done to speed up this pipeline through use of GPUs and other technologies. Third we will discuss a new version of the pipeline that takes advantage of the optimizations to enable incremental analysis, that is, leveraging all historical data on every new sequencing project with minimal overhead. We close this presentation by discussing the many points that are still open for optimization and how the community can get involved.
