msgen - R functions for interfacing with the Microsoft Genomics service on Azure
Colby T. Ford, Ph.D.
The Microsoft Genomics service in Azure can power genome sequencing using a cloud implementation of the Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA) and the Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK) for secondary analysis. The pipeline can take in multiple FASTQ and BAM files and provides alignment and variant outputs. The
msgen package provides an interface to use the service from within R.
