CompStor Novos® Demux feature (for Illumina sequencing)
See how to create demux fastq files at multi terabyte scale, from Illumina generated .bcl files.
de novo assembly (for Illumina and BGI)
See how to perform de novo assembly on Illumina, BGI and Pac Bio sequencers to product .fa contig files.
Germline alignment-based variant calling (for Illumina and BGI sequencing)
See how to perform alignment based WGS or WES germline variants from NGS sequencing fastq data. Select from variant outputs from a GATK variant caller or OmniTier’s proprietary Novos variant caller, structural variants (SV) or copy number variants (CNV).
Germline assembly-based variant calling (for Illumina and BGI sequencing)
See how by using assembly on NGS sequencing fastq data you can obtain hundreds or thousands more WGS or WES variants than obtained using alignment based variant calling.  Variant caller options include either GATK or OmniTier’s proprietary Novos variant caller.
PacBio processing
See how to generate a ccs fastq file from a PacBio .subreads.bam file, using either a PacBio style CCS function or OmniTier’s much faster, CompStor CCS function.
Somatic alignment-based variant calling (for Illumina and BGI sequencing)
See how to generate somatic variants from NGS tumor normal data. Variant caller options include either GATK or OmniTier’s proprietary Novos variant caller, or structural variants.
