Genomes on the Cloud (GotCloud)

To handle the increasing volume of next generation sequencing and genotyping data, we created and developed software pipelines called Genomes on the Cloud (GotCloud) for:

  • Mapping
  • Variant Calling

Key Features:

  • Scalable to tens of thousands of samples
  • Robust against unexpected system failure using GNU make
  • Massively parallel, can run hundreds of jobs
  • Easy to use - Automates series of configurable steps
  • Available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
  • Run on local machines/clusters
  • Available via Debian Packages


The following describes the use of this software with the Amazon Web Services (https://aws.amazon.com/), but you can just as easily use the pipelines on your own machine(s) by just installing them.

Setup

You may run the GotCloud software in several modes:

  • On your own hardware running Ubuntu or Redhat/CentOS. See the instructions about installing the software below.
  • On any EC2 instance that uses Ubuntu or Redhat/CentOS distribution. You can install the software as described below, or create a volume using our snapshot (see Amazon Snapshot).
  • On an EC2 cluster instance created by StarCluster. You can install the software as described below, or create a volume using our snapshot (see Amazon Snapshot).
