On December 2, 2021, instructors from the Broad Institute taught a 1-hr virtual webinar open to the GATK community, with guests from Illumina joining to present and and answer questions.
It was hosted by Derek Caetano-Anollés, with additional presentations by Heidi Norton (Illumina) and Michael Gatzen (Broad Institute). Expert panelists from the Broad (Geraldine Van der Auwera and James Emery) and Illumina (Deepthi Shankar) chimed in during the Q&A section to answer questions.
In this webinar, you will learn about the history of the DRAGEN-GATK collaboration, how it works, and how to get started using immediately on the Cloud.
