    Abstract

    I’ll talk about Strand NGS Server, our server-client NGS offering. Strand NGS server is geared towards small-to-medium scale clinical labs with high-volume sequencing throughputs and low turnaround times.

    The talk is in three parts. The first part describes how Strand NGS Server marshals the various computational resources available to a typical clinical lab. It also discusses the primary advantage of Strand NGS Server over its desktop counterpart: namely, collaboration.

    The second part describes the ease of setting up a given pipeline in Strand NGS server, and speaks of four examples, each corresponding to a different clinical panel: germline, somatic, clinical exome and rare diseases.

    The last part describes a day in the life of a bioinformatician, and goes over a few typical use cases of Strand NGS Server.
