11:15 The Korean Genome Project Using NGS and Genome Engine Informatics Pipeline
Jong Bhak, Ph.D., Director, Personal Genomics Institute, South Korea
GRF (Genome Research Foundation) sequenced over 50 Korean genomes using NGS (next generation sequencers). It revealed Korean specific SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms). To analyze this large amount of genome sequences, we developed genome annotation pipeline systems, Genome Engine. Genome Engine and associated software uses high performance computing such as Cloud.
