Available Pipelines

DRAGEN Genome Pipeline

DRAGEN’s Genome Pipeline is now available on DNAnexus. The DRAGEN Genome pipeline enables ultra-rapid analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data, reducing the time required for analyzing a whole genome at 30x coverage from ~10 hours using the current industry standard, BWA-MEM+GATK-HC software, to minutes, while also improving accuracy for both SNPs and INDELs. Running on a 2xlarge instance, the Genome Pipeline ~58 minutes.

This pipeline harnesses the tremendous power of the DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform and includes highly optimized algorithms for mapping, aligning, sorting, duplicate marking, haplotype variant calling, compression and decompression.
