The Cancer Crusaders Next Generation Sequence Analysis Core provides standard analysis of genome and transcriptome data to the Tulane Cancer Center.
Tulane HPC Contribution
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is both computationally intensive as well as data-intensive. Advances in sequencing instrumentation and technology has allowed large amounts of genomic data to be generated, with sizes and volumes that make it difficult, if not impossible to analyze on standard laptop or desktop workstations. HPC staff have assisted the Core in converting compute and data-intensive components of their analysis pipelines to use the parallel processing capabilities of Cypress, assisting with software components of the pipeline as well as with data management and curation. This allows the core to provide members of the Tulane cancer research community services which they would otherwise need to procure from outside the university.
