SeqAhead Workshop on High Performance Computing for Next Generation Sequencing Analysis (HPC4NGS)

Next Generation Sequencing has brought unprecedented volumes of data to the bioinformatics arena. Cost reduction in NGS forecasts massive adoption of these technologies by the genome research community. High Performing Computing might be a necessary choice for an efficient processing and analysis of this daunting amount of data. The HPC4NGS SeqAhead workshop presents recent advances in the application of High Performing Computing solutions for NGS. The workshop covers HPC developments for assembly, mapping, RNA-seq, variant analysis, and more and it is targeted to bioinformaticians and computer scientists with interest in NGS. Some background in computer science is recommended.
