Sentieon's Genomic Tools

Improved Best Practices Pipelines for Analysis of Germline and Tumor-Normal Samples

About this webinar

Recorded On: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

With next-generation sequence datasets frequently reaching petabytes in size, processing genomic data accurately and efficiently is increasingly a major computational bottleneck. The Sentieon Genomics Tools provide a solution to this bottleneck with a reimplementation of the mathematics underlying the GATK Best Practices pipelines for calling variants from germline or tumor-normal paired samples.

The Sentieon Genomics Tools provide identical results to the GATK pipelines with a 10x reduction in runtime, a robust software implementation, and deterministic data processing. This webcast will explore the benefits of the Sentieon Genomics Tools including a discussion of the results of the PrecisionFDA Truth and Consistency challenges and the ICGC-TCGA DREAM Mutation Calling Challenge for somatic SNV, indel, and structural variants.

Golden Helix has partnered with Sentieon to integrate its secondary analysis tools with Golden Helix software to provide users with a comprehensive solution for genomic data analysis. In this webinar, Dr. Andreas delves into the new partnership, followed by an overview of the Sentieon software by Dr. Donald Freed.
