This online seminar describes new technology capable of generating mate-pair sequencing reads up to 50 kb in length, enabling de novo genome assembly, closure, and finishing on the Illumina or Ion Torrent next-generation sequencing platforms.

As the molecular profiling Caris Life Sciences performs for cancer patients has advanced, the company's needs for managing high-performance analytics and storage have grown exponentially. Its next-generation sequencing (NGS) processes are now fully supported by IBM supercomputing technologies, including processing by IBM NeXtScale System servers.

Hadoop MapReduce is fast becoming a core technology in the exciting fast moving field of genome research. This whitepaper explains how IBM Platform Symphony helps dramatically accelerate Contrail, an important toolset in de novo genome assembly.
