Leveraging Seqera Platform on AWS Batch for machine learning workflows - Part 1 of 2

Leveraging Seqera Platform on AWS Batch for machine learning workflows – Part 1 of 2

Nextflow is popular workflow framework for genomics pipelines, but did you know you can also use it for machine-learning? ML is already being used for medical imaging, protein folding, drug discovery, and gene editing. In this post, we explain how to build an example Nextflow pipeline that performs ML model-training and inference for image analysis.

Running accurate, comprehensive, and efficient genomics workflows on AWS using Illumina DRAGEN v4.0

In this blog, we provide a walkthrough of running Illumina DRAGEN v4.0 genomic analysis pipelines on AWS, showing accuracy and efficiency, copy number analysis, structural variants, SMN callers, repeat expansion detection, and pharmacogenomics insights for complex genes. We also highlight some benchmarking results for runtime, cost, and concordance from the Illumina DRAGEN DNA sequencing pipeline.

Cost-effective and accurate genomics analysis with Sentieon on AWS

In this blog post, we benchmark the performance of Sentieon’s DNAseq and DNAscope pipelines using publicly available genomics datasets on AWS. You will gain an understanding of the runtime, cost, and accuracy performance of these germline variant calling pipelines across a wide range of Amazon EC2 instances.

BioContainers are now available in Amazon ECR Public Gallery

Today we are excited to announce that all 9000+ applications provided by the BioContainers community are available within ECR Public Gallery! You don’t need an AWS account to access these images, but having one allows many more pulls to the internet, and unmetered usage within AWS. If you perform any sort of bioinformatics analysis on AWS, you should check it out!

Accelerating Genomics Pipelines Using Intel’s Open Omics Acceleration Framework on AWS

In this blog, we showcase the first version of Open Omics and benchmark three applications that are used in processing NGS data – sequence alignment tools BWA-MEM, minimap2, and single cell ATAC-Seq on Xeon-based Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Instances.
