DRAGEN-GATK is here! Combining Illumina's hardware accelerated data analysis platform with the Broad Institute's variant discovery pipelines, DRAGEN-GATK takes two great things and makes them even better.
Illumina's DRAGEN (Dynamic Read Analysis for GENomics) has improved the speed and accuracy of genomic data processing across the board, making it even easier to run and analyze large-scale sample sets.
GATK (Genomic Analysis ToolKit) is the industry standard for identifying SNPs and indels in germline DNA and RNAseq data. Developed by the Broad Institute, it is already utilized to analyze genomic and clinical data around the world.
DRAGEN-GATK provides researchers with tools that are fast, reproducible, and accurate. In addition, the DRAGEN-GATK Best Practices contains open-source workflows that are compatible between Illumina's platforms and mainstream infrastructure.
In the following video, the leaders of both groups speak about what this collaboration means for genomic analysis and what it means for the future of the research community.
