  • Illumina DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform: Ultra-Rapid Analysis of Next-Generation Data

    Recorded Webinar (November 2019) | The Illumina DRAGEN (Dynamic Read Analysis for GENomics) Bio-IT Platform utilizes Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) hardware in combination with efficiently written software to provide highly-accurate analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data in a fraction of the time required with traditional CPU-based methods. The DRAGEN platform is a cost-efficient analysis solution that is easily scalable between analyzing small and very large sequencing data sets. This webinar is intended for users of DRAGENon-site servers with working knowledge of the Linux command line. In this webinar, we will discuss the following topics: Building reference hash tables and the various advanced options available; Recommended best practices for data input and output withDRAGEN on-site servers; Description of different types of variant calling available for the Germline pipeline, and; Demonstration of Germline variant calling with advanced options.

  • Illumina DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform: What is new with version 3.6 updates

    Recorded Webinar (June 2020) | The DRAGEN team is excited to announce the release of DRAGEN version 3.6. This version includes significant run time improvements to the germline and somatic variant calling pipelines with the implementation of deBrujin graph construction on the DRAGEN FPGA. We are also excited to announce support for FASTQC statistics generation, poly-G trimming, and improvements to the JointGenotyping and CNV pipelines. This webinar is intended for all customers interested in hearing more about what’s new in DRAGEN. These features will be made available for on-site customers and also Cloud users on various platforms like BaseSpace and AWS Marketplace.
