Genomics in the Cloud: GATK, Spark, and Docker

Genomics researchers today are faced with an ever-increasing amount of data to analyze, and yet they have a difficult time leveraging modern frameworks and technologies (like Spark and cloud infrastructure) to efficiently and accurately analyze their data. This practical guide provides the guidance these researchers need. With this book, you’ll learn how to combine algorithms designed for genomics with the leading tool for big data—Spark—and the ascendant paradigm of working in the cloud with Docker.
