Description

Since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, there has been an explosion in data fueled by a dramatic drop in the cost of DNA sequencing, from $3B for the first genome to under $1,000/genome today.

This workshop will focus on the application of Apache Spark and related projects to life science challenges by way of touching upon GATK4 pipelines, Genotype-phenotype association tests, and population scale risk-modeling.
